The colorful sights and sounds of a Philadelphia tradition 
will invade the James Work Memorial Stadium of Delaware 
Valley College on Saturday afternoon, October 4th. The 
Quaker City String Band will be the special halftime feature 
band as the Aggies of DVC host the Jersey Devils of Fairleigh 

Dickinson, Madison. The game and the halftime show are a 
part of the College's Parents' Day festivities. The kickoff is 
scheduled for 1:30 p.m. and ticket information is available at 
345-1500, Ext. 240. 


Tomorrow, October 4, 1980, is Parents' Day. Parents' 
Day, which started sometime in the 1950's; for many stu- 
dents this will be the first time they will have seen their 
parents since registration day. It will be a good chance for 
the parents to take their son or daughter out to dinner. 

From the standpoint of the school, it is the only time 
during the school year that the parents are formally invited 
to visit the college; although the parents are always welcome. 
It is a time for parents to meet their son's or daughter's 
teachers and learn more about the program at the college. 
On this day, all members of the administration and faculty 
will be available to confer with the parents. Everyone from 
the President on down will be present. 

The schedule for this year's Parents' Day is: 

10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon 

Registration at tent in front of Lasker Halt. There will 
be carnations for the mothers and coffee and donuts

Dr. David Blumcnficld 

by lerry Robbins 

Dr. David Blumcnfield, Professor of Horticulture at 
Delaware Valley College, recently revived the 1980 Eastern 
Distinguished Teacher Award. The award was presented to 
Dr. Blumenfield, one of only four teachers in the United 
States to receive the award yeit, at the Annual Con- 
ference of the NACTA (National A'^ociation of Colleges and 
Teachers of Agriculture) which was held at the New Mexico 
State University in Las Cruces, New Mexico. I he Farm 
Credit Banks of Springfield, Massachusetts, were the sponsors 
of the award. 

To qualify for this award, Dr. Blumenfield had to write a 
lengthy paper on his teaching philosophy and techniques in 
addition to receiving the NACTA Teacher Fellow Award. The 
Distinguished Teacher Awards are given to a selected group 
of outstanding teachers, based largely on the written article 
and on evaluations from alumni. The recipients, chosen by 
the highest standards and criteria established by the NACTA, 
must be primarily engaged in classroom teaching, must be an 
exceptionally dedicated and effective teacher and advisor, 
and must have outstanding credentials as a scholar. 

Dr. Blumenfield is an excellent teacher of horticulture 
subjects who is totally committed to teaching and who 
is continually updating his presentations. He spends many 
extra hours, including weekends and vacation time, on 
campus growing plants, preparing instructional material and 
assisting students. His students are expected to become in- 
volved in growing plants and studying their responses to 
certain growth factors. In the past, he has made his labora- 
tories come alive with plants and has used special "learning 
centers" where principles are dramatically illustrated or 
determined. He initiated the use at the college of all forms of 
audio-visual equipment to supplement the lecture and greatly 
influenced having all laboratory and lecture rooms equipped 
for the use of visual aids. He has also helped the college 
develop a well supplied audio-visual center for faculty and 
student use. 

Dr. Blumenfield has been a member of the faculty since 
1959, and in that time he has helped organize and advise 
Delta Tau Alpha (the student honor society in agriculture) 
and has been a dedicated advisor to the Horticulture Society. 

He has served the college and students with distinction, 
enthusiasm, and patience throughout his career. He is highly 
respected by his peers, students and alumni of the college. He 
is known as the most available teacher on campus. Most 
important to him, however, is the fact that he is a teacher of

Have you been given the elbow in class, unintentionally? 
Are there more students in your class than chairs? 

If you answered "Yes" to either of these questions, you 
have witnessed a common occurrence in the early part of the 
semester: "overcrowding." 

Overcrowding has many causes, and these causes are, 
hopefully, overcome by the first week in October. At pre- 
registration many of the section sizes are determined. Trans- 
fer students, who are accepted up to the middle of August, 
are not included in these figures, however. Another problem, 
(and one that has increased in recent years) is the one of 
students who can't make up their minds as to what classes to 
take. They drop some courses and add others. This student 
filtering may or may not balance out the sections. Also, 
sometimes professors simply allow students to enter a class, 
although it is reaching its upper limit. 

The two-week add-drop figures are usually out of kilter 
but by this time, hopefully, things have settled down and the 
problems are more visible. Then action, such as reassignment 
of rooms, can be taken. 

Mr. Fulcoly views scheduling as a challenge or a great big 
jigsaw puzzle. His biggest problems are the transfer student — 
since they are taking courses in every class level, the student 
repeating a course, and the student taking courses out of his 
major. Although he dislikes scheduling classes during lunch 
hour, sometimes it is the only way the course can be 

Right now the college is working on a computer system. 
Once the computer is set up, it may be easier to see the 
problems on the computer screen, and take care of them 
before aqyone is inconvenienced by them. However, it takes 
time for such a system to be put into operation, and it may 
be phased in one class at a time. At present, the college it 
still working with a hand scheduling system. 

Current overcrowding will not remove the elbow from 
your side or get you a chair, but at least you know why. 
Temporarily we must grin and bear it. 


( It's not as bad as it seems ) 

Although classrooms may seem more crowded this year 
than in the past, total enrollment is actually the same as last 
year. The reason for the crowded classrooms is primarily due 
to the popularity of particular courses, and inadequate room 
and laboratory space. 

Here are the figures for the 1980 Fall Semester as of 
September 30. 

Total Day Students 1,414 

Total Evening Students 301 

1,71 5 (down 3 from 
last year)

For those on campus who do not enjoy doing laundry 
(and so don't), or those who do not have to since Mom does 
it, or even those who run to town to do it, a new washer has 
been added to our beloved laundromat. This brings the total 
to five washers and six dryers for your convenience. Which 
isn't all that bad since the first ones only arrived in 1977. 

This is now the capacity that the laundromat can handle 
due to water pressure and space. The company which services 
the college is also replacing the machines which have died. 
One of the consequences of these replacements is that the 
prices on the new machines have gone up. 

If you should have any difficulties with the machines, 
don't hesitate to tell the Residence Life Office in Allman 
ibout them. If you don't tell them, they might never know 
there is a problem; therefore, the problem might not get 
taken care of. So don't delay - report problems right away! 


Louise Sanders, Class of 1980 Business Admin- 
istration major, passed away on Friday, 
September 26, 1980 after being involved in an 
automobile accident. 

A memorial fund has been established in her 
memory for the purchase of books in the 
English Literature area to be included in the 
collection of the Joseph Krauskopf Memorial 
Library here at the College. 

Friends may send contributions to Delaware 
Valley College, c/o Mr. Tasker, Dean of Stu- 
dents, in memory of Louise. 


General William C. Westmoreland will be the guest speaker 
here at the College on Wednesday, October 8, 1 980. 

The program is set for 8:00 p.m. in the James Work 
Gymnasium and there is no admission charge. 

General Westmoreland will speak about the Vietnam War 
as well as the state of today's military affairs. Westmoreland 
is a graduate of the United States Military Academy. During 
World War II he fought through seven campaigns and after 
the armistice, commanded the 60th Infantry Regiment in the 
allied occupation forces in Germany. 

The Korean conflict found Westmoreland in command of 
the 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team, and it was 
during this period that he was promoted to Brigadier General 
at age 38. He became a major general in 1956 at the age of 

in January 1964, he reported for duty in Saigon, South 
Vietnam and after four years of service in that conflict, he 
was sworn in as Chief of Staff, the highest position in the 
Army. On July 1, 1972, upon completion of the four year 
tour set by law for a Service Chief of Staff, he retired 
following 36 years of federal service. 

General Westmoreland has 19 U.S. Military decorations 
and he was elected as "Man of the Year" for 1966 by TIME

You'll have to warm up your taste buds for this treat. I 
was requested by the Editor to do an article on the cuisine of 
David Levin Dining Facility, and my findings may surprise 

As you approach this building, it looks as if you're walk- 
ing up to any other classroom at DVC, but there is something 
peculiar about this place. Each day a new series of odors 
arises and fills the air surrounding the building, and you 
know you're at the right place. 

Each week's menu is prepared in advance, so you know 
what to expect for the coming week. All menus are prepared 
with a selection of two to three main entrees per meal, an 
assortment of vegetables, bread, butter, salad bar, and a 
choice of beverages. Also, for vegetarians, there are a fresh 
fruit platter, cottage cheese, and yogurt, which is available 
at your request daily. You don't ever have to worry about 
going hungry, because you can go back for seconds or even 

For the money we pay for these meals, I think we get a 
real bargain. I haven't found a place yet where I could get a 
complete breakfast for $1.75, or a lunch with as large a 
selection as we get for $2.50, and dinner for $4.00. When I 
go to a restaurant and order a meal, it costs me anywhere 
from $6.00 to $15.00 for my meal, and that does.i't include 
seconds, or the tip. I must confess that some of the food 
that is presented to us is not to our liking, but that is why 
they offer a variety to choose from. 

My hat is off to the cooks and service personnel of David 
Levin Dining Hall for doing a good job in preparing and 
handling our food. 

If you have any suggestions or comments on how your 
food is served, prepared, or how you may be able to improve 
any aspect of the Dining Hall, your comments can be heard 
at the Food Service Committee meetings. If you see some- 
thing wrong with the food, go back and see the cooks; they 
would be happy to talk with you. 



With the recession hitting hard everywhere, college grades 
are becoming more important in obtaining a job after 
graduation. According to a poll of 47 major firms by Phil 
Marvin, U. of Cincinnati, Business Administration professor, 
large business firms are placing more emphasis on grades as an 
indicator of a person's ability to learn. Stacked resumes and 
nice clothes just don't cut the dice anymore! 


According to studies in five major cities with major 
colleges, police officials have announced that students are 
generally the victims of crimes and not the perpetrators. On a 
whole, the general public if more criminally active. 


The University of Iowa has a fire alarm system which has 
virtually eliminated false alarms. The system only sounds the 
alert to a local station, which is monitored by the R.A. The 
R.A. checks to see if there is a fire. If there isn't, they simply 
turn it off. If the alarm is not turned off in 60 seconds, it 
sounds throughout the dorm. 


District 3-8 of the Florists Transworld Delivery Associa- 
tion presented a Merit Scholarship of $500 for the 1980-81 
academic year to Janet Salter of Delaware Valley College. 

The award was presented at the FTD Association meeting 
held at the Convention Center of the George Washington 
Motor Lodge in King of Prussia, PA on Sunday, September 
28, 1 980. 

Janet is a senior Ornamental Horticulture major.

Sunday, September 21, 
saw the Adventure Club 
travel to the Delaware 
Water Gap National Park 
for a ten-mile hike. It was 
led by president Bob 
Romanowicz. The hike 
lasted about three hours, covering some not-so-flat terrain. 
Along the short journey the Club was treated to a variety of 
wildlife. Several of the members narrowly avoided danger as a 
copperhead snake lay amidst their path. 

It was not long before the group reached their destination. 
Glacial Sunfish Pond. Upon arrival, the members relaxed and 
had a bite to eat. While at the pond, Rob Eriemeirer captured 
a watersnake as it glided across the pond's surface. Located 
in Warren County, New Jersey, Glacial Sunfish Pond is part 
of Worthington State Forest. Resting atop Kittatinny Moun- 
tain, this scenic treasure lies on the world-famous Appalachian 
Trail and is a trip well worth taking. 

Future activities of the Adventure Club include horseback 
riding, caving, exploring, mountain climbing as well as a 
raffle to be held in November. First prize is a pair of Bonna 
2000 cross country skis; second prize, a down vest; and third 
prize, a gift certificate. Watch for details and feel free to 
come to our meetings.

During the first couple of weeks of this semester, our 
campus .looked like the rally grounds for a Bell Telephone 
convention. Trucks, vans and personnel roamed the campus 
more frequently than Security; in fact several of the students 
questioned whether this was an undercover security opera- 

What was all the commotion atx)ut? Through a system 
called "Dimension", DVC was to enter the twentieth century 
in telephone communications. The work was complex and 
tedious. Beginning in August, Bell employees began running 
new telephone lines from pole to pole throughout the 
campus. Shortly thereafter they began snaking lines from 
office to office and building to building with as little disrup- 
tion to the old phone service as possible. After all of this 
work was completed, the old phones were removed and new 
ones installed. The only thing delaying the entrance into 
computerized communications now was completion of the 
control center, located in the Stenography Department in 
Lasker Hall. 

The old control center required an entire room to house 
the maze of wires and relays. Dimensions' computer-con- 
trolled solid state circuitry takes up only a small portion of 
the old space ahd allows much easier servicing. The computer 
is housed in two oversized refrigerator structures and a relay 
panel that is approximately 12' x 7' x 6". It was not long 
before the control center was completed and all systems 
were declared go! 

The Big day for the entrance into "Dimension" was 
Mondaiy, September 22nd. After some last-minute checks. 
Bell's Service Advisor, Janet Gross, supervised the switchover, 
and at 4:30 p.m. the computer had taken control of all 
incoming, outgoing and inter-college calls. 

In an interview, Ms. Gross stressed that the new phone 
system would take a lot of pressure away from the operator 
and give greater flexibility to all calls. Dimension allows calls 
to be transferred from one office to another without the use 

of the operator, and also permits the dialing of local calls 
directly - both features which the old system lacked. Ms. 
Gross said that "through a series of codes, offices will be able 
to have their calls transferred to other extensions when they 
are not in", a feature students should find most convenient 
for leaving messages. 

These are but a few of the aspects Dimension offers the 
administration, faculty, staff and students of DVC. If you 
would like to know more about the system, stop by Lasker 
Hall and speak with Mrs. Martin or Mrs. Gourley, our own 
Dimension specialists. 

DIMENSION: Headaches and Happiness 

After one week of Dimension, the newspaper staff 
decided to visit some of the administration to see how they 
were faring: 

Mrs. Gourley: "Fantastic. It is new and very challenging. I 
look forward to learning all aspects of the system." The 
only setback Mrs. Gourley sees is that those phones 
equipped with buttons cannot take full advantage of 
Dimension's feature, a problem that may be corrected in 
the future. 

Mrs. Nelson: "For my needs the setup we have (non-button) 
is not very convenient." The old system allowed Mrs. 
Nelson to know who was on what line in the Placement 
Office, Residence Life Office, Area Coordinator or Dean 
of Students Office (her home base). Without the light-up 
buttons, she now plays a guessing game. "The call back 
and call forward is very convenient." Hang in there, Mrs. 

Mrs. Meskill: "Wonderful, it is so much more convenient and 
faster than the old system." 

Mr. Zenko: "It is easier to operate than when first inter- 
preted." Overall Mr. Zenko is pleased with the system. 
Now he and Mrs. Navarre have separate lines which 
permits calls to be handled much quicker. 

Donna Olsen and the old system in the waning moments.

In our modern age, where tension, confusion, respon- 
sibility and regulation put ever-increasing pressure on the 
human mind and body, the use, and abuse of drugs is a 
constant topic of conversation. In all of the negative talk that 
accompanies this subject, little appreciation is ever expressed 
for the most widely used, all-purpose drug ever created by 
man, namely music. 

After being reminded of your insignificance by a callous 
society each day, what better medication can one take than 
music? Be it with a powerful symphony performance or the 
pulsating drive of hard rock , your ego and self confidence can 
be pushed through the ceiling. The ferocity and might of the 
music can make you feel ten feet tall. 

Conversely, music can be used to rid tension and anxiety. 
Soft, mellow tunes that make the mind feel comfortable or 
bring back some pleasant memory help to push worries on 
the back burner. Proper song selection can help to banish 
any influences,of the outside world from the mind. 

These are but a few of the mind-altering qualities of 
music. Music sets a mood for any occasion. It can inspire, 
bring hope, fight despair. With the flip of a switch it can 
make the hateful romantic, or slip the lonely into a world of 
magic, hallucination, and fantasy. And there are few more 
satisfying feelings than when we agree with a moral or a 
message in a song. Music, no matter what kind, takes the 
mind from a world where it must fight to one where it is

Xanadu, starring Olivia Newton John and Gene Kelly, is a 
new form of movie entertainment described by its makers as 
"musical fantasy." As such, it was different from any movie 
that I had ever seen. 

Xanadu is a fast-moving film which has no real concrete 
plot. Olivia Newton )ohn plays a muse from Greek myth- 
ology who helps Gene Kelly to achieve his life-long dream. 
Kelly stars in the film as a man who played in the big bands 
during the World War II era. Michael Beck also stars in the 
film as the man Olivia falls in love with. Together, Olivia and 
Michael convince Kelly to open a dance club and thus fulfill 
his dream. 

"Captivating" is perhaps the word which best describes 
Xanadu. The music, performed byELOand Olivia Newton 
John is fantastic and is presently climbing the charts in 
popularity. I would recommend this movie to those of you 
who are tired of seeing movies that are primarily the same, 
but only the names seem to have changed. Xanadu is a 
refreshing change of pace which everyone, regardless of age, 
will enjoy.

Gina Erdelsky '81 and Anne Myers '81 are the dynamic 
duo of RA's in Cooke Hall. Gina, better known as Friskie or 
even S.K., is from Titusville, NJ. She is a biology major. Upon 
graduation, Gina expects to plan a career in veterinary 
research and hopes to take courses in the business field. 

This is Gina's second year as a Resident Assistant. She has 
been assigned to Cooke Hall, first floor, for both years. She is 
also co-chairperson of the RA Executive Committee this 
year. Gina has become a very responsible and dedicated 
leader along with being a successful peer advisor. She says 
that her junior and senior years have been worth the wait; 
being involved with various activities and organizations has 
made the difference. As a matter of fact, she wouldn't mind 
staying at DVC for another four years! 

Gina has been a member of the A.I.B.S. club for four 
years. During the fall semester of her sophomore year, she 
was the Inter Club Council representative for A.I.B.S. Gina 
was a member of the Block & Bridle Club her freshman and 
sophomore years. Gina has been a participant in Softball and 
floor hockey intramurals. She has also been active in the 
DVC Superstars competition as a team member and as an 

Gina is presently employed part-time in the dining hall. 
During the summer, she has been employed by Pitmann 
Moore as an Assistant Lab Technician in veterinary research. 

Anne is from Dillsburg, PA which is near Harrisburg, PA. 
She is a biology major and hopes to become involved in a 
water conservation profession. Her family has its own fruit 
farm, so she expects to work at home following graduation. 

Anne's interest in DVC came from her four brothers' 
recommendation. All four brothers are graduates of DVC. 
Anne was not involved in many activities during high school 
which makes her college career quite interesting. She never 
expected to be as involved as she has been at DVC. She 
believes that college has helped her mature. She has found 
that if you want something you have to do it and find it 
yourself. If it would be possible, Anne would love to repeat 
her four years of college life. 

Anne is presently a member of the A.I.B.S. Club. She has 
been active in Block & Bridle, the O.H. and Horticulture 
Club. She was also a participant in floor hockey intramurals 
her sophomore year. Anne has been treasurer of Student 
Government for the past two years and ha> served on various 
committees. Last year she was on the Food Committee and 
the Campus Beautification Committee, along with being 
co-chairperson of the Concert Committee for the Social 
House of Student Government. Anne h presently a student 
representative on the Residence Lrfe Bt.4rd and the Student 
Conduct Committee. She is also chairperson of the adver- 
tising committee for the Social House. This is Anne's first 
year as a Resident Assistant; she lives on Cooke, 2nd floor. 
She has been very responsive to her job responsibilities and 
has accepted the challenge as another aspect of her college 

Anne describes herself as a lover of nature. She loves the 
country and hiking in order to relax from her hectic daily

Saturday, the 27th of September, saw our Harriers travel 
to Moravian College for their second of seven meets this 
season. Taking on visiting Widener, as well as host Moravian, 
the team was looking forward to a good day. 

ft turned out to be a very good day for the Harriers, as 
they not only swept the meet, but co-captain )im Parsons 
established a new course record for the five-mile course. )im 
bested the course record, which he set last year, by 48 
seconds, covering the terrain in 25:58. Not far behind lim 
was freshman Ed Kuri who equalled Parsons old record of 
26:46, good enough for third place. 

Of the top ten finishers, seven were from Del Val. Rich 
Weaver was the fourth man in with a time of 27:10, ten 
seconds behind was Chip Cowher, and four seconds behind 
him was Rich Weidman. Carl Pellington was the ninth man 
across in 28:25. He was followed by freshman John Lucas, 
28:57, rounding out the top ten. 

Scoring: DVC 19 Widener 42 

DVC 15 Moravian 48 

NOTE: The tie with Kings College stands as an official tie 
according to the new rules of the NCAA. Our 
record thus far is 3-0-1 . 



Saturday, September 27th, may have been a glorious Fall 
day, but it might as well have been cold, rainy and gloomy 
for the football team. The team, would have been better off 
If they had missed the bus to Moravian. The offense stalled, 
the defense was ineffective, and the special teams gave a new 
meaning to the term "special." The only highlight for the 
Aggies was when they blocked an extra point halfway 
through the third quarter. The offense was in reverse and the 
defense remained in neutral for most of the game, although 
they did have two interceptions and recovered three of six 
Moravian fumbles. 

All in all, it was a tost weekend for the Aggies. A team 
they should have easily beaten surprised them. Hopefully the 
Big Green Aggie Machine will return to the winning ways on 
Parents' Day as they take on F.D.U., who Moravian defeated

If bad luck comes in threes, hopefully the bad is over for 
Del Val's soccer team who lost their first three games of the 

The Aggies lost to Muhlenberg, 4-0, on Wednesday, 
September 23rd, in their first game. 

On Saturday afternoon, Del Val hosted Widener but 
suffered a 3-1 defeat. 

The story didn't change much on Monday when Del Val 
took another loss against Scranton. The Aggies held tough 
with a 0-0 score at the end of the first half. Early in the 
second half Scranton got their first goal. Chris Wilson scored 
the Aggies' only goal of the game, which ended with a score 
of 5-1. 

The Aggies go to Albright on Friday. Let's hope the bad 
luck stops at three and our team comes home winners. Good 
luck guys - we know you can do it!

by Julian Prundeanu, Chairman 
Research Committee 

The Faculty Research Committee is urging the Seniors, 
and particularly those interested in graduate studies, to avail 
themselves of the Senior Special Problems program. Informa- 
tion regarding the program can be obtained from Dr. Berthold 
for students enrolled in the Biology and Chemistry Depart- 
ments, Dr. Brubaker for the Agriculture area, or from the 
Chairman of the Research Committee. 

Procedures for Senior Special Problems 

1. Students in Senior Special Problems should have a 
minimum cumulative academic average of 2.5 before 
registration for Special Problems. This figure (2.5) may be 
subject to revision for a specific department on the 
approval of the department and division chairmen in 
consultation with the Chairman of the Research Com- 

2. Students may register for a maximum of three credits of 
Senior Special Problems with the approval of their 
Department Chairman. 

3. The deadlines for the Senior Special Problems are as 

I Research Proposals Nov. 30, 1 980 

II Final Results 

- oral presentation April 30, 1 981 

- written final paper May 1 0, 1 981 

4. The original and one copy of the final draft are to be 
submitted to the Research Committee by the Faculty 
Advisor one week following the oral presentation. 

5. The format of the final report must follow a specific 
and acceptable arrangement as recommended by the 
standard research journals in the field of the project or 
the Research Committee. 

6. The Research Committee will submit the original copy of 
the final report given to them by the Department Chair- 
man to the library for future reference. 


I feel led to jot down a few thoughts concerning the 
Senior Special Problems Program and what I've gained from 
it. There are very few people who get the opportunity to 
pursue their own independent research for credit as an under- 
graduate. The experience is invaluable — a "warm-up" and 
drawing card for grad schooi, and in my case, the way I 
developed a deeply-rooted interest in a particular field of 
study. This disciplined research regime was a lot of work, 
and many days an albatross around my neck, but the 
contacts I've made in higher education and research, the 
interest shown by grad schools, and knowing that I really 
did attempt to do something that no one has ever done 
before (and even had a small measure of success!), really 
made it all worthwhile. 

I can't understand why only a handful of people chose to 
take advantage of one of DVC's best programs in '79-'80. 
If this note finds its way into the library copy of my paper — 
listen - if you are at all considering graduate studies or even 
just have an interest in something, do some research here — 
make your mistakes here and not on a real thesis. I heard 
too many people say that they didn't have time. Believe me, 
I am living proof that you can make time.

The Kenneth W. and Helen H. Gemmill Center for Animal 
Husbandry will be dedicated on Thursday, October 16, 1980 
at 10:30 a.m. The dedication will be held at the new center 
located at Farm #3. The ceremony will be presided over by 
Larry A. Middleton '64, Chairman of the Board of Trustees. 

Two agricultural societies will be holding meetings follow- 
ing the dedication, including the Philadelphia Society for 
Promoting Agriculture and the Quaker City Farms Society. 
The meetings will include a picnic type lunch at the Isaac 
Stern '08 Judging Pavilion and tours of the College facilities. 

The new center includes an Animal facility for produc- 
tion, care and management of beef cattle, a modern silo and 
loader, feed mill, bins for feed storage and housing for beef 

Kenneth W. Gemmill has been a member of the Board of 
Trustees at the College since 1975. Mr. and Mrs. Gemmill 
have been interested in the College's programs for many years 
and in 1966 donated their entire herd of Aberdeen Angus 
cows, heifers, calves and bulls as well as equipment and other 
materials to the College. 

The new Center for Animal Husbandry is another ex- 
ample of the Gemmill's generosity and reflects their con- 
tinued interest in the educational programs offered by the

The Parents' Day Dance, like most dances in the past, was 
not very well attended. Because of the lack of people, the 
band did not begin to play until about 9:30 or 10:00 p.m. 
After a couple hours, though, there were about 70 people 
having a great time booging on the dance floor. 

The scheduled band was Sky band, but because of the 
illness of the lead singer, Hat Trick from Delaware was 
substituted. The band played a wide variety of songs - rock, 
country rock, middle of the road, and later in the evening 
they played some 50's music. The band, although it was not 
terrific, was very good.

Dear Editor, 

Excuse me for asking this, 
but what are the lounges in 
the Resident Halls for? I've 
been told they are for 
studying; however, the 
conditions there are not 
conducive for this. The 
walls are drab and boring; 
the lights are not bright 
enough; and the lamps are 
in a similar condition. The 
windows are either falling 
out, absent, or loose and 
the wind blows through as 
if they were out. The TV's (in case you're tired of studying) 
are so bad or non-existent. Last year a TV in the Barness 
Lounge was broken at the beginning of the year. When this 
TV got smashed, it was charged to the entire dorm on the 
damage report at the end of the year, even though it was 
worn out and had no right to be there at the beginning of the 

Can anything be done about this? Some dorms don't even 
have a lounge; they've been converted to rooms. True, the 
money might not be readily available for improvements, but 
if repairs were made correctly it would be an improvement 
in itself. The students themselves, with some paint, could 
make improvements if the administration would approve. 

Yes, the lounges tain't what they're cracked up to be — 
and that's pretty bad, because no one cracks them up to be 
anything at all. 


Tired of the lounges 

Editor's Note: The Residence Life Office is aware of the 
condition of some lounges. They are in the process of 
renovating each lounge as money permits. Cooke Hall 
lounge will be receiving new furniture by November 1st. This 
furniture is experimental and is designed to be more durable 
and should hold up under heavy use. The fact remains thai 
the lounges fall victim to vandalism. 


Throughout several upcoming editions the Ram Pages will 
be presenting a series of articles on the various farms that are 
owned and operated by Delaware Valley College. In their 
entirety, they will contain a brief history of the farm and also 
the farm's present usage. 


Early Monday morning, Dr. Jesse Elson was stricken by a 
cardiac arrest during lab. Thanks to the efforts of Mark 
"Beencr" Houston, Dr. Elson is alive and in stable condition. 

Beener was in another classroom when Dr. Elson was 
stricken, and quickly responded by using CPR. His back- 
ground in CPR and first aid allowed Beener literally to save 
the life of Dr. Elsbn. Beener, our hats are off to you for this! 


Profile: MARK TANKERSLEY - "Soaring 
to Great Heights" 

by Jeanne Cranney 

Mark Tankersley, a junior 
Business Administration student 
at Del Val, is a fine athlete. Mark 
has participated in football, wrest- 
ling and track over the last two 
years, with track bringing him 
special honors. 

Last spring, Mark earned the titk "All-American" when 
he finished second at the NCAA Division III Championships 
for track and field. Mark's prowess is in the 110-meter 
hurdles which he cleared in 14.43, one one-hundredth of a 
second behind Leon Devero oT Glassboro. 

Mark thought he had a good chance to win and so did 
Coach Joe Coradetti, who Mark says "built a good program." 
This winter, Mark will participate in winter track instead of 
wrestling. Hopefully, this winter will be beneficial for Mark, 
who wants to improve his "sUrts." "My start killed me," 
said Mark. At the Championships, Mark was in fourth place 
with tv^o hurdles left to clear, but he said, "I really burned," 
and in doing so finished second. 

This spring should be a good track season for Del Val. 
Mark thinks that the help of several freshmen will strengthen 
the team. Danny Rupp, a high hurdler, is expected to be a 
member of the team, as is Ronnie Barret, who jumps great 
distances in the triple jump. In addition, there is a high 
jumper and a 400-meter runner on the campus, whose talents 
will be aired this spring. Mark hopes to get back to Nationals 
this year and says that there were some freshmen right 
behind him at the Championships who will keep him work- 
ing. This year Mark hopes to get his time down far enough 
to qualify for the Division I Championships in addition to 
the Division III Meet. 

In his spare time, Mark enjoys playing basketball, pinball 
and "hanging around with jim Parsons." The staff wishes 
Mark the best of luck this winter and especially during the 
spring track season.

To the Editor - 

As a commuting student 
trying to get involved In 
school activities, I was 
looking forward to voting 
in the September 22 elec- 
tions. According to Student Government, there was supposed 
to be an area in Segal Hall for the commuters to vote 
between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on September 22nd. 
There was only one problem with that; there was no such 
thing in Segal Hall. Nowhere did t see any ballots, and if 
there were, please tell me what corner they were hidden in. 
I reserve my anger, anticipating an answer. 

Name withheld by request 

by fude Carbfey 

The ballots were not hidden in any corner; they just never 
quite made it to Segal Hall. Since our Social House Represen- 
tative ran unopposed and we were only voting for a Social 
House Secretary, they felt there was no need for the ballots. 
Also, no member of Student Government had time to sit In 
Segal Hall over lunch hour and collect ballots. This is very 
common - the lack of interest in commuter views. You can't 
really blame them for excluding us since we never take 
advantage of the resources we have. We commuters never 
make the effort to express the way we feel; we just sit in 
Segal Hall and complain among ourselves. If we want to 
become part of this school, we must make ourselves known. 

You have two Representatives to Student Council; use 
them to voice your opinions. Toni Hoelpus is the Rep to 
Conduct and Policy and Carl Vivaldi your Rep to Social 
House. You can find them where else, but Segal Hall? Also 
you have your own column - let Commuter Corner know 
about your grievances as well as solutions. 

So come on, commuters, let's start now and try to 
change things around here for the better. Just imagine, you 
may even enjoy coming here. 

Editor's Note: 

Due to scheduling conflicts, students on Government 
cannot always man the polls in both Segal Hall and the 
Dining Hall- When elections and polls are taken and there is 
no one in Segal, take a few minutes and check out the Dining 
Hall. Your opinions and votes are desired - so, come on and 
check it out! 


by Martha Gehringer 

The question of who would you vote for and why was 
asked of the following people and here are their replies: 

Tina Taylor: Reagan, because she likes 
Bush and thinks Reagan will die in 
f office, paving the way for a Bush pre- 
sidency. She prefers Bush because she 
doesn't like Anderson or Carter. 

Denise Emiey: Reagan, because he has 
better leadership qualities than Carter 
and Anderson is too liberal.

The Staff 

[John Schultz: Doesn't intend to vote; 
I thinks it is all a joke. 

Russ Windle: Anderson; he won't vote 
for Carter or Reagan. He feels if Reagan 
gets in we will go to war, and Carter has 
screwed things up the past four years. 

Jean Stump: Reagan, in the hope he will 
die in office and Bush will become 

Sharon Raab: Reagan or Anderson, but 
not Carter - hp has messed things up 
too much already. 

Douglas Hartkopf: Carter. Doesn't like 
Reagan's policies. He feels if Reagan is 
elected there will be a draft, and Reagan 
is too conservative. Also, he feels Carter 
has done a good job. 

Cerinda Carboy: Don't know yet; not 
definite in views. 

Joe Kentos: Don't know. Thinks all the 
candidates aren't worthwhile. 



Over the past few years, 
students have been labeled 
apathetic yet have shown 


that they will rally to a 
cause - especially one that 
hits close to home. For 
example, in Pennsylvania 
the students of eight col- 
leges shut down their campuses for a protest of the tuition 
increase, which was eventually defeated. 

Steve Glazer of the California State Student Association 
believes that the student voter turnout in November is 
largely dependent on whether the candidates offer a clearcut 
choice on issues such as the draft and nuclear energy. 
"Students are realizing they do have the power and on 
certain issues they band together and have impact," says 
Chris Levy, the executive director of the Commonwealth 
Association of Students. To mount a successful voter regis- 
tration especially for the students, an atmosphere has to be 
created where voting and being active is seen as beneficial 
and not radical.

Now that's Italian! Joe's is by far one of the best Italian 
restaurants in the area. It does my heart and stomach good 
to be able to sit down to a meal, and when I finish to be 
completely satisfied. I have heard only good comments from 
people who have eaten at Joe's. I have gone to Joe's many 
times before, and each time a new taste lingers in my mouth. 

Joe's offers a complete menu, from entire dinners with 
lots of pasta; some of the best pizza in town; and seafood 
too. All main dinners include a freshly tossed salad, and a 
roll and butter. I had the lasagna ($4.25) and recommend it 
highly; It was superb. Joe's also ha| one of the best veal 
parmigiana dinners ($3.95) in the area, and it included a side 
dish of spaghetti. My date enjoyed the eggplant parmigiana 
($3.95); she got so much I had to help her finish it. Joe's is 
generous with portions. All Italian and pasta specialties are 
served with Joe's homemade sauces. 

joe's also serves a real good pizza, and has a good selec- 
tion of toppings to choose from. It also serves steak sand- 
wiches, hoagies, oven grinders, and cold platters for you 
vegetarians. Prices range from $1.45 to about $2.60. So, on 
our limited college budgets we can go out and have a really 
nice meal. 

No reservations are required at Joe's, but business starts 
to pick up about 7 p.m. I would also suggest eating there 
around 5 p.m. or 6 p.m. for dinner. You don't have to worry 
about getting a seat then. 

Joe's has a pizza special on Monday and Tuesday - buy 
two pizzas and get the third one free. If you're having a 
party, or a big study session, this would be perfect for you. 

Another good feature about Joe's is that you can bring 
your own wine or beer to enjoy with your meal. Not many 
restaurants in the area let you do this. 

For those of you who get the "munchies" in the evening 
hours, Joe's has a delivery service. The entire menu is avail- 
able for delivery. 

Joe's is located at 726 N. Easton Highway. As you go 
through town, go past the McDonald's, Dunkin' Donuts, 
through the light, and it's about a quarter of a mile past the 
light on the left. 

Joe's is open 7 days a week; Monday through Thursday, 
11 a.m.-11 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m.— 12 mid- 
night; and on Sunday from 1 p.m.— 11 p.m. 


Did you know the biggest weekend of the semester is 
coming up?! 

Homecoming 1980 promises to be bigger than ever and 
what a shame it would be for you not to take part in all the 

One thing students seem to neglect is the Dorm Decorat- 
ing Contest on Friday, October 17th. Do not take this 
lightly! You can win $50 for your dorm. This money can be 
used for all sorts of activities. 

Another thing people seem to forget Is helping your 
club build its floats and spirit cars. I can understand people 
not liking to stay up until 3 a.m., but it is a lot of fun. (You 
can bring your own things (bottles) to keep warm. You can 
be with all your club friends. 

Finally, don't forget to stay for homecoming. Cheer our 
Aggies on and have lots of fun!! Don't forget to go to the 
Pep Rally! And the Dance! And to see your old graduated 

See you There!

Now that inspection has passed it's obvious that no dorm 
room contains a hot pot, popcorn popper, toaster oven, or 
any other such illegal appliance. And, of course, all refri^ra- 
tors are legal and kept to their restricted forms. 

So, what do you do after a day of eating mystery meat 
and peach (?) fritters? You just have to have some munchies 
to satisfy your hunger; that is, after you recover your 
appetite! Introducing the fine Culinary Art of Dormitory 
Cooking! That is to say, without the convenience of stoves, 
ovens, etc. There are a variety of things which can be made 
with small yet sometimes illegal appliances. 

Many students own irons (legally), but unknown to them, 
they also own a cooking appliance. In order to make a grilled 
cheese sandwich, just butter your bread and prepare your 
sandwich as you would normally, then wrap it in aluminum 
foil. Turn your iron on and press lightly on the wrapped 
sandwich. This method can also be used for warming up 
leftover slices of pizza. 

If you don't like the taste of instant coffee, try this. Put 
a teaspoon of "drip" coffee in a small strainer, add a filter 
(from Chem Lab), and pour boiling water over the grounds. 
Let steep until the desired strength is reached. 

To eliminate unpopped kernels, keep your popcorn in 
your (illegal?) freezer; this also keeps it fresh. If you have no 
freezer, you can run ice cold water over the kernels before 
you pop them. 

If you have the type of popcorn popper with a heated 
base and bowl type cover, you're in luck! You can use the 
base alone as a frying pan. Just heat it up as usual and use 
the appropriate oil or butter to grease the "pan." With this 
method you can cook eggs, fish, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, 
corned beef hash, or even Stovetop stuffing! 

Hot pote are very versatile. Of course, you can make hot 
tea or hot chocolate, but there are many other things you 
can make. To make iced tea, use two to four tea bags in a 
quart hot pot, dissolve four packets of sugar and two packeu 
of sweet and low (or six sugars), and allow to steep. Add an 
equal portion of cold water to the tea and add ice. You can 
make any type of canned food such as spaghetti, ravioli, 
beef stew, macaroni and cheese or soup in your hot pot. To 
keep your pot clean, fill it about !4 to Vi full of water, peel 
the label off the can, and place the open can in the water. Be 
sure to stir the contents of the can as it cooks. You can tell 
the food has been warmed when the water in the pot boils. 
But be careful not to let the water boil into the can! 

To roast marshmailows, try holding them over a candle 
flame! If you want some different dishes for a party, try 
following the instructions on a lello box and add fruit 
cockuil to make a fruit salad. Instant pudding can also be 
made quickly with just cold milk. Of course, you can't get 
the two cups of milk you need from the cafeteria! There are 
also desserts like cheesecake which you can make without 
baking. So take some money to the supermarket and store up 
some food for when you get those munchies. It sure beats 
going to the Snacit Bv every night or driving to town. Why 
not try your hand at some in-dorm cooking?

With a false alarm still fresh in our minds, the Ram Pages 
feels that it is time to reiterate what the Administration has 
been trying to tell the students for years. Tampering with 
fire protection equipment is not a joke. Although last week's 
alarm was accidental, the need for everyone to understand 
the hazards and consequences of tampering with this equip- 
ment is essential. 

Throughout the country, false alarms and safety device 
damage are prominent problems of many college campuses. 
Each year, thousands of students' lives are endangered 
because of the thoughtlessness of a few having "fun." 
Setting off an alarm is not only an act of ignorance, but it 
endangers the lives of those within the surrounding com- 

When an alarm is set off at DVC, the call is immediately 
channeled to the college's security agency, Miley. The only 
way the fire company will not send all of Its equipment is by 
receiving phone calls from security and the Residence Life 

Office. Even when this happens, one fire engine and the chief 
are sent to Investigate the problem. 

The obstruction of equipment is not the only problem 
encountered with false alarms. Depending on the situation, 
fines can and will be levied against individuals or entire 
floors, if those responsible are not caught. Along with the 
fines, campus residents who are guilty are subject to losing 
their residency privileips. With the advent of several false 
alarms per semester, the school becomes liable to large fines 
and possible prosecution. 

So the next time you see or hear of someone tampering 
with fire alarms, bells or extinguishers, don't hesitate to 
confront him and report the damage to the R.A. or the 
Residence Life Office. If an alarm is set off accidentally, call 
Security immediately - time Is of the essence! Remember, 
this is your home for nine months out of the year - TAKE

Ellsa Newhart '82 and Marjorie Gay '81 represent the 
Resident Assistant suff in Barness Hall. This 1$ the first year 
as an RA for both women. Elisa works on the first floor and 
Marge has been asJgned to the second floor. 

Elisa's hometown is Florham Park, N). She was attracted 
to DVC because of its small size and because of the broad 
agricultural program; she was especially intrigued by the 
practical experience that all the majors offer. Although Elisa 
i$ a horticulture major, she truly enjoys having access to all 
phases of the agricultural and science programs at DVC. Her 
career goal is to teach vocational agriculture. 

Elisa is a member of the Horticulture Qub; she was Club 
treasurer last year. She is active in floor hockey, Softball and 
volleyball intramurals. Her hobbies include gardening and 
hiking. During the summer months, Elisa is employed by the 
Park Commission as a counselor for the Children's Gardening 

Elisa's job as an RA has been more enjoyable and 
beneficial to her than she had expected. She attributes her 
success to the women on her floor. According to Elisa, DVC 
has met her college expectations; it has all happened thanks 
to friends. 

Marge is from Riverton in central New Jersey. Her uncle 
is an alumnus of DVC which prompted her interest in the 
College. She is an Animal Husbandry major and is planning a 
career in veterinary research upon graduation this spring. 

Marge has been self-employed during the summer months 
doing landKape work. Marge's leisure time is generally 
centered around outdoor life activities; she is most interested 
in camping and fishing. 

Marge says that college went too fast but she is looking 
forward to challenges ahead of her. Although Marge leaves 
DVC in the spring, she says that good friends stay forever.

The Aggies boosted their record 
to 2 and in t* MAC Northern 
Division with a crushing 48-0 victory 
over the Fairleigh Diclcinson Jersey 
Devils last Saturday. 

Jim Yazujian got Del Val off to a 
great start when he took the opening 
kickoff and ran 94 yards for a touch- 
down. The 94-yard scamper, just 13 
seconds into the game, was a school 
record which stood for 12 years. 
Gary Myers made it 7-0 as he kicked 
one of his six extra points of the day. 
The day's leading ground gainer, 
Eric Reynolds, got the first of his 
two touchdowns with 2:48 left in 
the first as he spun off right tackle 
for the three-yard score. Tom Houpt 
then scored two second-quarter 
touchdowns. The first came with 
9:49 remaining in the half; the 
second came with just four minutes 
remaining and just three plays after 
Greg Salicondro had a touchdown 
denied by an offensive holding call. 
The Aggies had a commanding 27-0 
lead at halftime. 

On the Aggies' first possession of 
the second half, Eric Reynolds 
brought the Parents' Day crowd to 
their feet when he took Del Val's 
first play from scrimmage 41 yards 
for the touchdown. 

As the fourth quarter began, Pat 
Lake intercepted an FDU pass and 
raced 30 yards to the five-yard line. 
Then three plays later it was fresh- 
man quarterback Tom O'Neil who 
punched it in from the one. With 

only 1:27 off the clock in the fourth, the Aggies took a 41-0 


The Aggies' final touchdown came with just 28 seconds 

remaining in the game when Tom O'Neil found Rodger 

Kennedy for a 16-yard strike, making the final score Del Val 

48, FDU 0. 

This victory set the stage for tomorrow's game, when the 

Aggies will be in Lycoming for a duel between two teams 

who are undefeated in the Middle Atlantic Conference 

Northern Division play.

Jim Parsons led the way last 
Saturday as our Harriers swept three 
dual meets at Swarthmore College, 
[edging the hosts 27-28. Philadelphia 
Pharmacy fell 23-31 and surprise 
guest Lincoln University was no 
match for our squad, taking it on the 
chin 19-40. 

Parsons set his third course 
record, besting the old one by 1 3 
seconds at 26:20. Chip Cowher was 
fourth overall at 27:39, with Carl 
Pellington not far behind in the tenth spot with a time of 
28:12. This was Carl's best performance ever (it pays to eat 
your Wheaties!!) One second behind Carl in the eleventh 
position was freshman Ed Kuri. Rich "Stones" Weidman was 
the man of the day, edging out a Swarthmore harrier, to 
guarantee the clean sweep. Stones was fourteenth overall 
with a time of 28:26. 

Notes: The sweep, which raises the team's record to 7-0-1, 
will set the scene for tomorrow's contest between Scranton 
and Lebanon Valley at L.V.C. With a good performance, the 
Harriers could have an extremely exciting day . . . Last 
week's surprise appearance of Lincoln gave Doc Berthold his 
100th career victory at DVC . . . Rich Weaver, Jim Trainer 
and John Lucas finished 22, 23, 24 in last Saturday's contest 
... Be sure to be at the stadium at Homecoming as the 
Harriers take on Kutztown at 2:00 p.m.

Cash prizes were awarded to the top 3 players in the tourna- 
ment. Winning first place was Victor Jones, who received 
$25. Second place honors and a $1 cash prize went to Mark 
Breme. Tim Pillon won the third place cash prize of $5. 

The sophomores would like to thank the students for 
their participation in the event.

Brenda Wolfe and Bernie Romana sparked the steel wall 
offense to a 4-0 shutout over visiting Ursinus on Pacrnts' 
Day. Bernie was the key Saturday as she devastated the 
opponents in the sweeper position, leading the Golden 
Bananas to their third straight win. 

Thus far the ladies' only loss has been at the hands of 
Muhlenberg. The Aggies sorely missed the offensive play of 
Brenda Wolfe, who was out with a back injury. Brenda is 
back and the other ladies have caught the hockey fever!!! 


Albright Freshman goalie Janice McNeil turned away 12 
shots jis well as a penalty shot. Aggies shut 'em 
out 4-0. 

Moravian Irene Costa was the game's outstanding player. 

Playing fullback she did not allow any shots on 

goal. We won 3-1. 
Muhlenberg The team played tough but dropped the game, 


Goals: Brenda Wolfe, 5; Diane Bradley, 3; Kelly Kerner, Sue 
Leed, Cathy Vitulla, 1.

Friday, October 3rd, had our team travel to Albright to 
"kick-off" the Parents' Day weekend. Looking for win 
number one, the Aggies w^e hungry as they had been 
man-handled three times already this season. The team came 
out fighting and by the time the game was over they had 
number one in the bag - 4-0. 


Tryouts for this year's J.V. and Varsity Basketball teams 
will take place this Wednesday in the James Work Gym at 
4:15 p.m. If you are interested and have not done so yet, 
contact Coach Lombardi. Managers and statisticians are also 
needed for both J.V. and Varsity teams.

In the opening weeks of college, returning upperclassmen 
moved into their rooms and nrraunted all the "home-like" 
trimmings. Incoming freshmen brought all their necessities 
plus a few odds and ends. Now you start to search around, 
find your old friends and seek out some new ones. You form 
little groups within your dorms and try to stir up a little 

In the opening weeks of college, the "gentlemen???" in 
Elson and Wolfsohn Halls started a sequel to Star Wars; some 
call it "Dorm Wars." In this battle, however, there is no 
Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker, but there is an old-world- 
animal known as "the rowdy." One dorm raids the other 
with leftover delicacies from the dining establishment or 
miscellaneous articles from around campus. 

Taking a mild walk down to the Farm House dorm I 
found another rare and more ancient animal called "quiet." 
It is almost more quiet than the "supposedly" quiet library. 
This provides the perfect environment for studying. The 
main part of campus is where these scholars would rather 
frequent for entertainment, ratfier than terminate the last 
quiet specie of its kind on campus. 

Returning to the main part of campus, courtesy of 
security, I strolled through Goldman and Samuel Halls. In 
both dorms the first floors were relatively quiet, while on the 
second floors I found some more rowdies. In Samuel it was 
noted that some of the noise please be quelled during study 
hours. The same goes for Goldman second as well. 

In Work Hall, all was quiet and for one important 
reason - COLD. Many students had to leave their building 
to seek comfort and warmth to improve studying conditions. 

Ulman Hall always has something going on. Three floors 
make for all kinds of people with ail kinds of "hobbies" 
going on behind each door. 

Cooke and Barness Halls are also relatively quiet. With 
intramural season rolling around, girls floor hockey will 
surely stir up excitement all over these dorms. 

Berkowitz is also quiet during the week. Berkowitz has 
one of the nicest lounges for studying, especially when you 
have too many people dropping by your room to take an 
hour to say "hello." 

Miller was the last dorm on my trip. A small number of 
rooms makes it very easy for students to get to know each 
other. During the day we hear some refreshing music on our 
way to or from class at not too high a volume. I personally 
feel it gives the campus a little warmth, no matter how cold 
it is outside. 

The best part about dorm life is Thursday night to Satur- 
day night. Parties, Parties, Parties music of all kinds from 
L.Z. and C.D.B. to Bach to Lorrcita Lynn. All dorms have 
activities behind closed doors after dark. When there are 
activities for students on the weekends, the dorms are alive 
with excitement and partying. 

With Homecoming app'oaching quickly, this is preceded 
by the annual dorm decorating contest. This is done to show 
how much enthusiasm and spirit can be drawn out from 
within each dorm. It gives students a chance to work to- 
gether, meet some students that you have not already met, 
and to have a good time to try to put together a winning 
decoration and win your dorm some money. Last year many 
students did an outstanding job on decorating their dorms. 
Let's keep the tradition and spirit going; let's get our dorms 
decorated. What to you have to lose? 


The Ram Pages is in need of sports writers. It is im- 
possible for us to give full coverage to our teams with our 
present staff. If you have an interest in sports, inter- 
collegiate or intramural, we could use your help. Besides, 
while enjoying the contests you will be earning half a credit 
per semester. Come on, the. Big Green Aggie Machines are 
getting better every day - help us spread the news!! 


To better serve the student body, the newspaper staff is in 
the process of revamping and expanding its present structure. 
We believe we can have a publication that is informative, 
educational, entertaining and - most of all - up-to-date. The 
degree of success is dependent upon participation from all 
facets of the College, particularly the student body. 

If you have any interest in writing, photography or 
artistry, your talents are more than welcome. If you have 
opinions on current topics or school policies, our editors 
would be more than glad to hear from you. Thank you for 
your time and future support!

The Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce was the scene 
of a seminar entitled "How To Become a Good Manager or a 
Better One," held last Thursday, October 2nd. The purpose 
of this workshop was to define management, to learn how to 
motivate people, and to handle employees' personal prob- 
lems. Mr. West and three psychologists each gave a speech 
focusing on these issues. 

Following the talks, the speakers fielded questions from 
the audience, who represented such diverse fields as banking, 
social work, and single proprietorship. 

It was interesting to see how principles and theories 
studied in the classroom are put to use in the business world. 


Preregistration conferences for the Spring semester are 
scheduled to occur from October 27th to November 3rd. 
Final registration will be on November 4th in the Rudley- 
Neumann Gynmasium. (These dates are a change from those" 
previously issued.) 

You should see your Department Chairman or your 
Departmental Counselor for an appointment between 
October 27th and November 3rd. Students with problems 
will be additionally scheduled for a final conference on 
November 4th in the gym. 

Students who fail to preregister by November 4th will 
have to register in January after everyone else. This may 
mean that you have jeopardized your program for next 

Complete details for departmental counseling will appear 
in the October 24th issue of Ram Pages.

the student newspaper some- 
thing the student body of 
D.V.C. can be proud of. It 
is also nice to see the stu- 
dent involvement in the paper. 
(It is about time we had some 
involvement around here.) 

The paper can only be as 
of D.V.C, make it. So let's

The Ram Pages Staff 



Dear Alumni: 

Welcome to the 83rd Delaware Valley College Home- 
coming. As we are sure you have noticed, the Collegian is 
no longer. 

The staff of the Ram Pages extends its most sincere 
welcome to you for a most enjoyable Homecoming weekend. 
The paper has undergone several changes this semester, the 
most noticeable being the name. Ram Pages was the students' 
choice in a recent contest and poll, defeating its nearest 
competitor. Agrarian, by a two to one margin. Along with 
the name change, the paper has a new format and a wider, 
more informative, up-to-date context. We hope that these 
changes will give the students, faculty and staff of D.V.C. 
something to look forward to weekly. 

In order to continue the growth and present status of the 
paper, we will need support and feedback from all aspects 
of the college, including you, the Alumni. You have been 
out in the working world for some time. The knowledge and 
experience you have gained is invaluable and could assist 
present and future students at Del Val. Information on the 
job market, post graduate work and studies, as well as 
interests and hobbies could be beneficial to the student body. 

We would be interested in hearing from you at any time. 
Please, if you have anything that the Ram Pages could use to 
help better serve the student body, send it our way. 

Have an enjoyable and safe weekend.

FARM =1 

II you have ever walked down the gravel road past the 
tennis courts and the football fields to the buildinn on the 
left with the plaque stating that the building is a historical 
site of Bucks County, then you have visited Farm =1. 

The building that is now known as Farm #1 was built in 
1751 by an Englishman. It was known for over 100 years as 
the "Wayside Inn." Later it was called "Steven's Tavern." In 
colonial days it served the stagecoach travelers going from 
New York to Philadelphia. Military parades took place in the 
innyard and the attic served as a voting place and a township 
meeting hall. 

After the Revolutionary War, the government tried several 
methods of raising the taxes; one was a window tax where 
the taxes were based on the- number of windows in the 
building. This structure then contained 41 windows and seven 
outside doors. Like other buildings constructed during this 
time, the edifice was heated by a fireplace in each room. At 
the time the structure served as a tavern, it consisted of a 
barroom, lobby, small gambling room, kitchen, innkeeper's 
quarters, a ballroom on the second floor, and guest rooms 
with beautiful carved woodwork and fireplace mantles. 

After the College purchased the building, it was con- 
verted into a residence hall; the sign "Zionist Hall" hung 
outside for several years. In 1952 it was converted into a 
research and teaching laboratory. After the completion of 
the Mandell Science Building in 1966, the house was con- 
verted back to a residence. 

In 1978 the College began to house students there. At the 
present time, the house consists of an apartment which 
Mr. Tasker occupies, and two 4-woman rooms, occupied by 
three sophomores and five freshmen. Although it is quite a 
distance to walk to the classrooms, the women living there 
seem to like living there very well.

Most students at DVC save their night out for the 
weekend. But, if you have a free Thursday night and want a 
nice place to sit around and talk while you're enjoying a 
large pizza and a pitcher of beer, then the Skyline Restaurant 
and Bar is for you. This large pizza and a pitcher of beer is a 
Thursday night special for $6.00. Other specials are offered 
during the week, but the pizza and beer on Thursday night is 
my favorite! 

The Skyline also offers a variety of platters, from hot, 
roast beef ($3.10) to honey-dipped southern fried chicken 
$4.00. Most of the platters come with French fries or 
spaghetti, cole slaw, and roll and butter. Some of the platters 
offer different items, such as sliced eggs or a tossed salad, 
with your meal. The Skyline has a good selection of sand- 
wiches, steaks, and hoagies ranging in price from $1.10 to 

The Skyline Restaurant is a nice place to go for lunch on 
a Saturday after a football game, or just to talk over old 
times. So, if you have a few friends over, and need a place to 
have a sandwich or pizza, think of the Skyline. 

If you travel on 202 South, the Skyline is located in the 
Chalfont Shopping Center, about five miles from campus. 
The kitchen is open Monday through Thursday, 11:00 a.m. 
to 12:00 midnight; Friday and Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 
1:00 a.m.; and Sunday, 3:00 p.m. to 10:00o.m. 





According to the annual salary survey by the College 
Placement Council, the average salary offered to 1980 
college graduates was higher than those made to 1979 
graduates. In all 24 curricula surveyed, the CPC found 
increases, despite the economic turndown. Engineering as 
well as petroleum engineer graduates have an average salary 
of $23,844 annually. Computer science graduates, $18,696 
(up 11%). Humanities and social science graduates have a 
starting wage of $12,864 (up 9%), the lowest in the recent 


More conservative attitudes toward drug use were found 
in a University of Michigan survey of 17,000 high school 
seniors. More than three-quarters of the young people said 
they disapproved of experimenting with any illegal drug 
other than marijuana. Nearly 70% disapproved of regular 
marijuana use and 34% said they were against trying pot once 
or twice. The survey findings continue a trend first noticed 
in 1977, say researchers. 


The freshmen had their first Chemistry exam on Wed- 
nesday, October 8th. Either the freshmen studied more for 
the Chemistry exam because of the low grades on the 
Biology exam, or the exam was not too difficult, for most of 
the freshmen thought that they had scored well on the exam. 

Keep on studying, freshmen - you can make it!

Our own Editor-in-Chief, Nancy L. Swartley, interviews 
General Westmoreland. 

General William Childs Westmoreland at one time or 
another was probably among the most hated men In America. 
He has been referred to as a "warmonger" or "child 
murderer." Yet, on Wednesday, October 8th, the general 
received a standing ovation as he entered the gymnasium to 
address 500 students and public on the dangers America faces 
at home and abroad. The general was equally well received in 

a political science class earlier that afternoon. The boo'sand 
hisses are gone; instead the general finds his audiences 
attentive and interested on foreign affairs and his role, in 
which he held the fate of thousands of American soldiers 
under command. The general is noted to be psychologically 
tough and has taken a lot of verbal abuse, especially when 
speaking on campuses. He feels by the virtue of his experi- 
ences he can provide insight which is helpful when tackling 
today's problems. Westmoreland states, "I enjoy talking on 
campuses; I may be deceiving myself, but I feel I am making 
some sort of contribution with my experiences, my insights 
and with international affairs." 

Throughout the evening's speech, General Westmoreland 
touched upon many channels - America's future, military 
and economic stature around the world, particularly in the 
Soviet Union, and the problems in South American countries. 
What is America's solution in dealing with the economic and 
military situations? Westmoreland states that economically, 
America must desperately find a way to get hold of inflation 
and must develop its own self-reliance. He pointed out that 
America imports 14 strategic materials, while the Soviet 
Union imports only four. Militarily, Westmoreland feels the 
volunteer army is not working; he is opposed to ending the 
draft. The United States must build up the quantity and 
quality of its ground forces. 

General Westmoreland's views and opinions were also 
exchanged in a private interview which I had the opportunity 
to attend. The following questions were asked of General 
Westmoreland on Wednesday afternoon, October 8th. His 
opinions are noted. 


0. In the upcoming election, what political candidate are Q. What are the prospects of nuclear power and the efforts 

you in favor of supporting? 

A. I'm not here to campaign, but I am voting for Mr. Reagan. 
I feel that Reagan is a sensible man and will act rationally 
in the nation's best interest. 

Q. Is the United States military prepared if there were to be 
a war? 

A. No! Today's army, the volunteer army, is not working. 
The Army can never compete with the private sector to 
attract top quality people. (Ht also adds that the Army is 
filled with "substandard soldiers," fifty percent of whom 
don't have a high school education.) 

Q. What is your opinion of the hostage situation and how do 
you think it should have been handled? 

A. I would have told Carter not to make any threats, not to 
provide any excuse to galvanize the body (in Iran) to use 
the hostages to bring about unity. This was a matter that 
should not have been handled by the military. It should 
have been handled by skillful diplomatic action. The 
Iranians will keep the hostages as long as they are an asset. 
When the hostages become a liability, then they will be 
released. I would have discouraged the hostage raid. He 
did not sufficiently consider the effects of failure. 

against it? 

A. Nuclear power's got real potential. But there are strong 
lobbyists against it (for example, Jane Fonda) to kill it 
off and I think that's a shame. 

Q. How do you feel about women being drafted into the 

A. I think it's ridiculous and I think women in combat is 
asinine. Women do a wonderful job in the service, but 
fighting in combat is not something they have an aptitude 
for. They may be able to fight with their husbands and 
boyfriends, but to live in the foxhole and do hard labor - 
I think it is absolutely ludicrous. 

Editor's Note: We would like to thank loe Marron and the 
Cultural Alliance for providing General Westmoreland to 
Del Vol's student body and the surrounding community. We 
hope that more speakers and future events will be planned 
and will be attended by all! 

For further information on General Westmoreland's life, 
please consult his new book, A Soldier Reports, now out in 
paperback by Dell Publishing Co. 


Eric Reynolds '83 and Harry Delanoy '82 are the resident 
a^istants in Wolfsohn Hall. Both Eric and Harry are 
experiencing their first year as an RA. Thus far, they are 
enjoying the job; it has provided them with more respon- 
sibility and more opportunities to be with people than they 

Eric is from Willow Grove, PA. DVC appealed to him 
because of its unique size and because he would be able to 
play football for the Aggies. He is a Business Administration 
major anticipating a career in advertising. 

As a member of the football team his freshman year, he 
received the DVC "Rookie of the Year" award and also the 
Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference "Rookie of the 
Week" award. Eric is a member of RAP and participates in 
intramural basketball and volleyball. 

Although Eric has not discovered his political career at 
DVC - yet (maybe next year, Eric) - he was vice president 
of student government in high school. Eric's hobbies include 
watching and participating in sports, writing poetry AND 

Harry is from Milltown, Nj. He is an Ornamental Horti- 
culture major and he hopes to have his own landscaping 
business; he is especially interested and specializes in patio 
and railroad tie work. Harry's cousin graduated from DVC 
in 1969 and it was he who inspired Harry to apply to DVC. 
As with most students, the size of the College was also 
inviting. During Harry's senior year of high school, he was 
honored by the Cooperative Education Program as "Student 
of the Year" as a result of participating in a work-study 
program which inspired his interest in landscaping. He is 
currently employed part-time at Cole's Nursery in Buck- 
ingham, PA. 

Harry was a member of the O.H. Club his freshman year. 
He participates in intramural football and volleyball. Harry 
spends a lot of his free time hiking, skiing and fishing; as a 
matter of fact, he would not mind being a commercial 
fisherman. Harry and Anne Hassoldt '82 are engaged to be 
married the summer of 1982. According to Harry, college has 
been very worthwhile; he believes he has become more 
perceptive of people and better prepared £g make decisions 
and accept responsibility.

Thursday night, October 9th, Del Val students were 
treated to an outstanding night of entertainment by Ted 
Steranko. Ted has been playing the guitar for eleven years 
and has been performing publicly for four years. He brought 
with him a repertory of songs, both original and a long list of 
top artist songs, including Chapin's Taxi, Kenny Rogers' The 
Gambler, and Gordon Lightfoot's Edmund Fitzgerald. He 
even dug up some older songs, such a Mr. Bojangles and The 
Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald and played them to perfec- 
tion. He accepted as many requests as he had time for. 

I talked to Ted after the performance to see what he is 
like and how he got started with performing. Ted is a very 

nice gentleman with a commanding stage presence and a light 
touch of humor to carry him through his act with a brilliance 
not equalled by most coffee house entertainers. He said he is 
an opposite kind of guy. If you say, "Turn left," he'll turn 
right. That was the way he got started. He turned away from 
the clarinet, went straight past piano, and turned right into a 
guitar soloist. This brought Ted to where he is today, a 
bright, enthusiastic, talented entertainer. 

NOTE: Approximately 40 people took advantage of this 
event. Ted may return next semester; keep your eyes and 
ears peeled.

Have you seen Caesar lately? Caesar, for those of you who 
aren't up-to-date on current affairs, is a ram on Farm 3 who 
has the dubious distinction of being the mascot for DVC. He 
should be making regular appearances at the football games; 
however, to date he has only one appearance to his credit. 

Student Government owns Caesar and it is its respon- 
sibility to get him to the games. What usually happens is 
that after three or four games have gone by, someone on 
Student Government decides the ram should show up. 
They arc then dashing around trying to find a safe way 
to get him there, and someone who knows how to fit him. 
If Student Government doesn't wake up, someone on Block 
and Bridle does, and they may try to get Government to 
get him to the games. 

At present, Caesar is ready to go anytime he is needed. 
Mr. Gilbert, whose job it is to care for Caesar's health and 
not book his personal appearances, suggests Government 
close its minutes at the end of the year with a decision on 
how Caesar should get to the games. This way he would be 
in attendance at the first game. 

(If you read the minutes of Student Government, you will 
notice that they've decided to let the Block and Bridle 
people handle it. Nice going, guys; the week before you 
didn't even know where he was and he's your responsibility. 



No, this is not a dream or a fantasy; this is reality! After 
years of struggling, Coach A! Wilson and his Big Green Aggie 
Machine are in the driver's seat. The Aggies defeated 
nationally ranked, 8th, Lycoming 90. In doing so, the 
Green and Gold is in sole possession of first place in the 
Northern Division of the MAC's at 3-0; 3-3 overall. 

The victory was no easy chore, as it wasn't until the 
third quarter that first blood was drawn. Tom Kenny, 
10-3-1, hit Ron Barrett with a three-yard pass and Gary 
Myer added the point after. On the first play of the fourth 
quarter, Warren Robertson took Upsala quarterback Rick 
Burd, 32-13-4, for a ride into the end /one to finish up, 
not only the scoring but the Warrior offense. The Aggies 
intercepted Burd four times in the final period. Must have 
been some hit! 

The B.G.A.M. hopes to make it 4-0 (4-3) tomorrow as 
they host Upsala at 1:30 p.m. down at the Stadium. Last 
week the Vikings shutout F.D.U. 23-0. It should be a good 
game with both teams coming off of shutout victories. See 
you there!

Two of the best teams in intramural football met on 
Tuesday when State Pen took on the High Flyers. 

State Pen wasted no time getting on the scoreboard as 
they intercepted a Flyer pass on the first play of the game. 
Just two plays later it was quarterback Mike Monderergine 
hitting )ohn Del' Gaiso for a touchdown. 

The Flyers were unable to move the ball on the next 
series, so they had to punt. State Pen once again took 
advantage. On one play Mike Monderergine threw a touch- 
down to Paul Martino, but as before, the extra point 

As time ran out in the first half, Monderergine threw 
his third touchdown pass of the day. This' time it was |ohn 
McNamara making the catch as State Pen opened up a 
19-0 lead at the half. 

The only high point in the game for the High Flyers 
was a miraculous catch of a Tim Bomboy pass, in the end 
/one, by Rich McMahon. 

With under two minutes remaining in the game, Mike 
Monderergine put the final points on the board. Mike 
took a quarterback keeper around the left side for an 
easy six points as State Pen took a 25-6 decision in the

The Team 



by M. McManiman 

Awesome may not be the most feminine way to describe 
women, but it is fitting in this case. When the Golden 
Bananas take the field, the opponent used to laugh; no more, 
my friend. Now, the squad is awesome and the opponents 
shudder in their shin guards. 

After a tough loss to Wilkes, the hockey team has put it 
back together. Last Thursday they downed Gwynedd Mercy 
5-0 and this Tuesday devastated F.D.U., 4-0. That's shutout 
number four this season!!

Facing the toughest competition of the season, our 
harriers dropped a quad meet, 1-2, last Saturday. The virus 
that weakened the team took its toll as host Lebanon Valley 
and visiting Scranton downed our Aggies 24-31, 24-33, 
respectively. The day did have some sunshine as Messiah fell 
42 to our 1 9 and Jim Parsons won, again! 

|im set his fourth course record this season, slicing 
twenty seconds off the old 25:32. Unfortunately, it was 
another minute and a l]alf before another Aggie, Ed Kuri, 
crossed the finish line. Ed was eighth overall with a time of 
26:43, and not far behind him in the eleventh position 
was Rich Weaver, 26:59. Rounding out the scoring for the 
harriers were Rich Weidman and Carl Pellington, both with 
times of 27:36, good for 16th and 1 7th. 

Hopefully, the virus that plagued the team last week will 
have run its course when the harriers host Kutztown State 
tomorrow. The meet will be run at 2:00 p.m. down at the 
lames Work Memorial Stadium. Come on down and cheer 
the team on to victory, as they look for number nine.

It was a cold, dreary October afternoon last Monday, 
and it got worse for thfe DVC soccer team as they faced 
another defeat of the season. The winning team was Spring 
Garden with a 4 to 2 victory. The game was tied at the half 
with a 2-2 score. DVC scorers were Dan Parsons and Neuri 
Tobatabi. The Aggies gave up the last two goals in the 
second half. 

The soccer team also suffered a loss of 3-0 to Ursinus 
on Saturday, October 1 1th, at an away game. 

Everyone is reminded that there is a home game on 
the 18th at 11:00 a.m. against Kings College. Come out 
and support the team on Homecoming and show th^m 
that we're all still behind them.

Here's an easy question for all you rock music experts. 
Which famous band came out of England with the Beatles, 
spent its early years rivalling The Who in style and popularity, 
has released 25 albums, and currently has an album which has 
been in the top 20 for three months? The answer, believe it 
not, is the Kinks, that distastefully dressed collection of 
little-known musicians which has been bouncing between 
superstardom and obscurity since 1964. Many of their 
songs convey sheer genius, while other tunes have been 
labeled trash by reviewers. The Kinks play music which the 
listener immediately recognizes and often knows at least 
the chorus to, but couldn't tell you the artist performing it. 
Lola, All Day and All of the Night, A Well Respected Man, 
and Victoria are but a few of the tunes which the Kinks 
brought with them in the "British Invasion" of America. 

The late sixties to late seventies represented an apathetic 
slump for the Kinks though. Strangely enough, this period 
saw some of their most brilliant work, including <4rf/jur, On 
the Decline and Fall of the British Empire, which is almost 
every bit as good as the more popular Tommy and Quadro- 
phenia. Interest in the Kinks is now being rekindled by 
the release of Kinks tunes by Val Halen (You Really Got 
Me) and The Pretenders (Stop Your Sobbing), and the Kinks 
double live album. One for the Road. Finally, the Kinks roll 
into the Spectrum at the end of the month for two shows 
there. If you can find a ticket, it will be well worth the 
price to witness a bit of musical history. 

Dr. Weber discusses the use of a spectrophotometer, which 
is used to analyze phosphates In detergents, with Rob Gold 
and llm Glueck. These students are from Central Bucks- 
West High School and they participated in a Chemistry 
Honors program for high school students offered by our 
Chemistry Department. The program was held on Monday 
(Columbus Day).

On the twenty-fourth of October, students, faculty, or 
whoever wants to have some fun will be treated to ahayride 
sponsored by the Sophomore class. It will most definitely 
be cold, so there will be hot chocolate to warm you up. 

Second, there will be two wagons filled with plenty of 
hay under which to keep warm. 

But third, and most important, if you come with a 
boyfriend or girlfriend, that should kee,'' you plenty warm, 
no matter what happens to the beverage or the hay. 

It promises to be a fun-filled evening for all. Watch 
for signs and get ready. We don't want to leave without YOU!

Thursday, October 16, was a day of making new friends 
and renewing old friendships as the Gemmill Center for 
Animal Husbandry was formally dedicated. On hand for the 
mid-morning ceremony were members of our Board of 
Trustees, Administration, Faculty, student body, and Mr. and 
Mrs. Gemmill. Many new people were introduced to our 
college as representatives of several societies, including the 
Society for the Promotion of Agriculture and the Quaker 
City Farms Society. 

The ceremony was presided over by Board President Larry 
Middleton and Dr. Feldstein. Mr. Middleton spoke on the 
dedication of the Gemmills to the college and how through 
the efforts of Dr. Pelle, the center became a reality. The 
dedication was kept short and was followed by college tours 
and a luncheon in the Isaac Stern judging Pavilion. 

The Pavilion provided a very informal atmosphere which 
relaxed friends of old as well as new. Thanks to the Floral 
Design students, the tables were brightened up with silk and 
dried flower arrangements. The atmosphere was made even 
more friendly by several of the members of the college choir. 

After the dedication and during the luncheon I had the 
opportunity to speak with the Gemmills as well as several of 
the guests. Mr. Gemmill was proud of the workmanship that 
went into the construction. "The money was made available 
at the end of 1978. The building went up very quickly and 
was completed this April. This is a very good improvement 
for we have accomplished everything we desired . . . This will 
make the preparation of show animals much easier, the 
Animal Husbandry Department is very happy." 

A.B. Wintress (recently retired Vice President of Campbell 
Soups Agriculture Department). "I am very impressed 
with the facilities here. The acreage is extensive and 
provides an atmosphere very conducive to learning." 
This was Mr. Wintress' first visit to the college. 

Mr. White (Philadelphia County Agent)' "This is my first 
venture beyond the campus . . . very extensive." Mr. 
White also stated that there are a number of D.V.C. 
graduates throughout the Agency Program. 

Mr. & Mrs. A.W. Berger (N.J. residents): The Bergers' reac- 
tion was similar to that of the other first-time visitors. 
They were amazed at the extensiveness of the college 
and couldn't wait for the tour. "Things like this 
(college) need to be preserved." 

Dr. & Mrs. R.E. Bartholomew (Dr. B. is principal of the W.B. 
Saul High School of Ag Science): "We have been here 
for A-Day but never beyond the campus." Once again, 
surprised by all of the land. Dr. B. noted that 
there are several Del Val grads teaching at Saul and he 
is very proud to send his students here. 

Mr. & Mrs. Partain (Phila. Society for Ag Promotion): This 
was the first time since 1958 that the couple has 
visited Del Val. They loved the Farrow operation. 
Mr. Partain 's Ag background is quite extensive as he 
served the Soil Conservation Society and the Depart- 
ment of Agriculture in Washington, D.C. for nearly 
20 years. He knows what he is talking about. 

Mr. Art Poley (Trustee): In a nutshell, here is what the most 
outgoing Board member had to say about the day. 
Of the luncheon - "in the midst of it all . . . in the 
involved area . . . realism in action. This is really 
tremendous, it was great to see the student involve- 

Mr. Shapiro (Vice Chairman, Board of Trustees): "It was a 
very interesting day; the tours were well attended and 
the art display in the Library was very nice. The entire 
atmosphere was beautiful, the foliage, the students, 
the weather and the choir all added to the ceremony." 
Also noted was that half of the Board was here!

To wrap up the Homecoming Weekend, there was the 
Annual Homecoming Dance. Social House invited a dynamic 
band back to DVC for a return engagement. The delay In 
getting started was that TNT brought an incredible amount 
of equipment with them. 

Once the band began, around 9:50 p.m., the extremely 
loud music, the heat, and the sweat began to flow. The 
selection of music was excellent. A good variety of hard and 
soft rock and good slow dance music had a good number of 
students having a great time on the dance mat floor. Along 
with TNT's outstanding music, they also had a good variety 
of light effects, including strobe lights behind the drums and 
explosions of fire from the top of the speakers. All in all, it 
was an outstanding night for all of those students who 


Recently I received a letter addressed to Dr. Feldstein. 
It was written by concerned students who held the registra- 
tion tent hostage over Parents' Day Weekend. The tent was 
taken as a prank, but it was also to prove an important point 
about the College's security force. The letter indicated that 
the relationship between the students and Security is bad and 
getting worse, because most students refuse to cooperate, 
feeling that they are being harassed for minor violations. In 
taking the tent, the students felt that it proved where 
"Security's priorities" were — preoccupied with minor 
violations, rather than placing more ennphasis on major 
security measures. 

The Ram Pages' staff presented this letter of concern to 
Dr. Feldstein who had also received a copy of the letter. Dr. 
Feldstein commented that this matter sHould be handled on 
a one-to-one basis. He would like to talk personally with the 
"concerned students" to work on a solution to the problem. 
Matters of this sort need to be kept from being blown out of 
proportion; they can be talked over and handled appropri- 


(continued from previous column) 

It was a glorious day and one in which many new friend- 
ships were made. Hopefully those responsible for maintaining 
these relationships will follow-up on their newly found 
friends. Perhaps Mrs. Gemmill summed up the day best by 
saying, "DVC is an unsung gem of the county." 

NOTE: On the interior of the building is a plaque dedicated 
to Dr. Pelle. The plaque is a result of the Gemmills who feel 
Dr. Pelle's dedication to the students was a major factor in 
the building of the Center. Thank you, Dr. Pelle!!!

Editor's Note: 
How True!'! 

Dear Editor: 

Well, it's that time of year again when people in all the 
dorms start complaining about dorm damage. It is the end 
result of Homecoming and A-Oay weekends on this campus 
every year. I have been told that most of the damage done to 
the dorms on Homecoming is due to visitors. As far as I know, 
visitors are people who are invited by friends who are stu- 
dents here on campus. So, after these visitors arrive and 
become thoroughly drunk, they go all over campus literally 
raising hell and damaging property they will never have to 
pay for. 

Can't you people get it into your thick-headed skulls that 
we have to pay for everything they break over a weekend? 
Or is it that your Mommy and Daddy are footing your bill at 
DVC, so you just don't care - period! Or maybe you like 
seeing your friends act like idiots destroying yoi/r property! 
I will have you people know that whether you are rich or 
poor, the pric^ of things are rising astronomically, and the 
age of "prosperity" in the United States is, relatively speak- 
ing, over. We have to use what we have to the fullest and take 
care of it so it lasts! The only way to keep damage to a 
minimum If at all, is to have some party rules. 

As a whole campus, our R.A.'s gave us all a set of party 
rules. All parties, in case you forgot, are illegal. People don't 
listen to tfiis rule, and I don't blame them. I am a native of 
New Jersey, and if I could drink there and handle myself 
appropriately, then I would drink here as well. The key thing 
though, is to party behind closed doors. If you are having a 
party with friends over Homecoming, is it so hard to lock the 
door after everyone is thoroughly "pickled" so they won't 
make a "scene" out in the hall destroying things? I know 
there are times when you must let your friends run to the 
bathroom to vomit up their guts, and that's understandable, 
but for the most part you can have a good time in your own 
room. It's a shame that this principle is not carried out on 
this campus. For the most part, it is get drunk as fast as you 
can, and then at some ungodly hour, let's say 2:30 a.m. 
Saturday morning, the "Uvern doors are opened" to let the 
drunks frolic in the halls waking up the dead. 

There really has to be an end to the senseless damage done 
by drunks on this campus during Homecoming - or any 
weekend for that matter. If your friends can't party decently, 
don't have them party at all!

Editor's Note: This Is something the Residence Life Office 
has been telling us for years. To this day, It Is a problem. 
What can we say that hasn't already been said? 

To the Editor: 

One of the most exciting days of my life was when I 
received my accepunce letter to DVC. I was never happier. I 
am a freshman this year and also a field hockey player. As 
much as I like the sport of hockey, my academics come first. 
I am playing on the DVC team and consider it a great 
privilege. I feel I am very dedicated to sports but I do not 
consider myself different from the "so-called" NON -ATH- 
LETES. Our coach does not either. At the Pep Rally, 
Coach Wilson's prejudiced speech embarrassed me terribly. 
For the first time, I felt like a fool admitting I was an 

Maybe if Coach Wilson did not treat his football players 
as if they were on top of a pedesul and the non-athletes were 
bowing down to them, we would not have the hard feelings 
that some of us do now. 


An Athlete, not bowing down. 

To the Editor: 

This is in response to the speech Coach Wilson gave to the 
student body at the Pep Rally Friday night First of ah, how 
can he justify saying that tne only people to supp^t any of 
the teams are the jocks themselves? Who does he tiilnk sits 
there in ^e sunds on Sanirdays to watch his precious foot- 
ball team? I have never seen any of them at a soccer or 
hockey game. Are these sports too below them? What other 
athlete pts steak and eggs for breakfast on Saturday morn- 
ing? I believe that the reason many of the students are 
apathetic toward the football team is because the players 
themselves walk around with a superior attitude. Granted, 
they shoufd be proud when they win, but not cockey. 

It would be great for the team U> win the conference for 
the school, and I hope they do, but hopefully we won't get 
it thrown up in our faces! 


An Ag Major and 

a Weekend Athlete 

P.S. Sorry to the good guys on the team . . . 

Editors - 


There needs to be something said about Coach Wilson's 
"pep ulk" last Friday night As a member of a "non-football" 
team, I was disheartened when he was introduced as "the 
coach of the most important team on campus." I was 
tempted to leave at that point but I decided to remain. I 
should have listened to my conscience. 

Wilson surted by commenting on the wide differences 
between the athlete and non-atfilete, yet he sounded as if he 
were ulking to his football team. He talked about how 
school spirit should increase, yet those who attended the 
Rally were those who Initiate the school spirit - the team 
members and their fans. Wilson asked how much school 
spirit there would be without football, but I seem to find 
more rallying spirit at volleyball games than at football games. 

In conclusion, I feel that Coach Wilson's talk was one of 
disappointment and anger rather than one of pep. 

DVC Splrlter 

Editor's Note: You are not the only one who feels this way. 
During the course of one day many people stopped by to 
voice their disappointment in the rally. Hopefully, we can 
take comments of this nature and throw them out the door. 
We can make this community a much happier place to live by 
sticking together. Many people have worked hard to unite the 
student body, faculty, staff and administration during the 
last couple of years. The comments of one person should not 
destroy what many have worked toward. Hang in there gang!! 

Dear Editor, 

I am writing in response to Friday night's pep rally. The 
crowd was there in force - students, professors, alumni and 
parents; the atmosphere was set . . . cheering, clapping, 
laughing; what seemed to be another energy-packed Home- 
coming Pep Rally was under way. Things were going great 
until DVC's own. Coach Al Wilson put a damper on the 
whole night's events. All the other coaches spoke of winning 
seasons, outstanding players, but not Coach Wilson. Instead, 
Mr. Wilson chose to speak on a certain division between 
athletes and non-athletes at Delaware Valley College. He 
went on to talk of outspoken students and professors who 
have caused this split in the student body. When he was 
finished, a mood of very mixed emotions filtered through the 

Most felt like school-aged kids caught cheating on a 
spelling test Well, Mr. Wilson, 1 agree with you about a 
certain division in the student body, but that's as far as I'll go. 
The division as you stated was between athlete and non- 
athlete; I say it's between football players and the rest of the 
student body. A great deal of the blame, though, does not lie 
with the football players themselves. (Although there are 
some that give the others bad names.) Instead, Mr. Wilson, I 
feel that the blame for such a division lies with you and 
your athletic department 1 resent the fact that I have to pay 
full tuition ($5,000 plus) and tfie majority of the football 
players are paying a great deal less. 

Mr. Wilson, answer me this - if, as you stated Friday 
evening, an athlete comes here first for a degree and secondly 
to play sports, why then is your football team mostly made 
up of Business Administration majors? Why pay $S,060 
yearly for a B.A. degree, when you know too well already 
that the majority of the players here are on some aid from 
this school with help from your office? Another thing - the 
unnecessary expense to this school through your department 
is ridiculous. I won't quote any figures as I don't have any 
available, but I'm sure they must be public knowledge and 
I'm challenging you to make them available to us, the student 
body. 1 could go on and on about new uniforms, Adidas 
raingear, your closing of a weight room to the student body 
(a weight room for all of us to use, as the sign on the door 
states), in order that your football players may use it 

In closing, just how free was that Stadium to the student 
body? Any response you may offer would be greatly 
appreciated. Thank you.

Dear Editor, 

How can anyone in his right mind place the F.F.A. float 
ahead of the Christian Fellowship float in judtf ng the Home- 
coming Float Contest??? 

By far, the Christian Fellowship float showed much more 
work, originality, MOVEMENT, beauty, and at the same time 
conformed to the Homecoming theme of 'Things To Come." 

In addition, the Christian Fellowship Club made success- 
ful use of a water fountain to make the float even more 
attractive and eye-catching. This is possibly the first time 
that water has been used in a HoR.ecoming parade with such 
brilliance and effectiveness by any club on campus. Did the 
judges take this into consideration??? Water is also ant>ther 
form of movement Did the judges consider that??? 

There is no intention implied to take away credit from 
the F.F.A. Club. The F.F.A. members did an outstanding 
job on their float, as did all of the clubs on their floats, each 
trying to come up with the winning combination for First 

Congratulations F.F.A.

This week we went to the Lake House Inn, by far one of 
the best restaurants we have been to. If you have that certain 
someone, and want to treat him or her to some of the best 
seafood that you'll ever eat, then I recommend the Lake 
House Inn. 

The Lake House Inn Is located on the shores of Lake 
Nockamixon. The view of the' lake and the surrounding 
countryside will add to your special evening. As you drive up 
the driveway to the Inn, it reminds one of an old sea captain's 
house. The Inn Is landscaped with various types of old ship 
riggings, even pieces of an old pier. The inside is furnished in 
an early American decor, with a nautical touch. 

The Lake House Inn recommends that you make reserva- 
tions in advance. This is a very popular restaurant, and on the 
weekends there may be a difficult time in getting a good seat 

The menu is set up to offer entrees of seafood or other 
sensational main courses, such as duck, beef or chicken. Each 
meal is prepared to perfection, and I know you will be 
delighted with your meal. I had the beef and r^ef ($13.95), 
which consisted of filet mignon and broiled stuffed shrimp. 
Both of these melted in my mouth — a memorable experi- 
ence. My date had the Lake House flounder ($1 1.95) stuffed 
with crabmeat, also very delicious. A salad is included with 
every dinner, and I would recommend the house dressing. A 
mixed vegetable dish which consisted of fresh garden vege- 
tables (zucchini, squash, cabbage, beans and nr\ore) was 
included in the meal. There is a complete dessert menu, 
ranging from cherries jubilee to their very own homemade 
cheese cake. Most entrees ranged in price from $10.95 to 

To get to the Lake House Inn from Delaware Valley 
CoHege, Uke 202 North to 313; go north on 313 for about 
10 miles;, turn right on Three Mile Run Road, and'it will take 
you to the Lake House Inn. 

The Lake House Inn is open for dinner seven nights a 
week, from 5:00 p.m. until 1 :00 a.m. 



Regularly $10.95

Th« ashes are settled now, and people are remlniKing 
about the night when the robot caught fire and the campus 
was visited by numerous pieces of fire equipment. Few 
people, including those llvirlg in Barness, realize how close it 
came to being a disaster. 

The guys who cut the robot free talked of how hot it was 
in the room, that they could hardly breathe. The window in 
the room was open to allow the cord to be plugged in. They 
also tell that if the flame had risen a few feet more, the 
flames could have caught the curtains on fire. If the curtains 
had caught fire, it would have easily spread through the dorm. 
The fire would have risen through the roof or maybe through 
tfie electrical system. Fire doesn't uke long to find a passage. 
It didn't Uke long for Ulman third to burn. 

Now instead of looking at the rot>ot's ashes, we could 
have been looking at Barness' ashes. This would have caused 
thousands of dollars of damage and pouibly cost some lives. 
We were fortunate this time quick action and good luck were 
on our side. A fire of this nature is always dangerous, since 
lives are always at suke. Maybe this fire, along with the 
memory of Work Hall fire last year, will cause people to use 
more care in the use of appliances and other illegal items. 

Fire is no laughing matter.

Sunday night the robot came to life and Security missed 
the show. 

No one could have predicted what was to happen Sunday 
in front of Barness Hali. The 15-foot high robot caught fire. 
The exact cause is still under investigation, and one can't help 
but wonder at the possible cause. Quick action saved the 
dormitory from following the robot in a blaze. The fire alarm 
was pulled immediately, signaling both the Ooylestown Fire 
Department (which is less than ten minutes away) and 
Security (which is ten seconds away). Both arrived on the 
Kene at about the same time. Due to the antics of some 
people, the fire department was misled and thought the fire 
to be at Samuel. Security, however, drove by Barness at least 

When Security came out of hiding and found its way to 
Barness, the fire was out A crowd, which had gathered to 
enjoy the show, was dispersed by Mr. Marron. After over an 
hour of ringing, the alarm was silenced. Once Security made 
the scene, they did perform their job. But one can't help 
wondering where they were before they graced the premises. 
The students did control the fire and the RA's evacuated the 
building quickly so no one was injured. Yet, if something 
more serious had happened. Security should have gotten 
there before intermission, because this time it wasn't a false 

Sunday night, through the quick action of four young 
men, a possible tragedy was averted. 

At 10:45 p.m., the robot, the Homecoming dorm decora- 
tion of Barness, caught fire. John Schuitz and Ken Corkey, a 
visitor, reacted by pushing die robot away from the dorm 
and Bill Bippus, RA Work Hall, and Scott Goroski responded 
quickly in getting the fire extinguishers and putting out the 

Through the fast response of these four, little damage was 
done and no one was injured. All of Barness would like to 
sincerely thank these guys for a job well done. 

This H an open tetter of thanks to the above-mentioned guys 
from all of the girls In Barness Hall.

Now that mid-terms are over, we can all take a minute to 
reflect on dte past weeks. Do you remember when you made 
a promise to yourself, "This semester is going to be different. 
I'm going to be ready for my exams well ahead of time. I'm 
going to surt my 6rm papers as soon as they are assigned. 
I'm even going to read my textbooks. I may even spend some 
time in the Library." 

Like Mike Schmidt in Game Five of the playoffs, you 
probably went 0-5. You found yourself running around like a 
chicken with its head cut off trying to get the no.tes from tfte 
lectures you missed. Driving your roommate and friends 
crazy, you plead for sympathy and cooperation. The time 
that was to be spent studying was spent on more important 
things, joe and Kathy wanted to go to the mart; some of the 
guys made you go out for pizza; and you just had to see that 
movie. When you convinced yourself to study you would 
suddenly remember that there was a volleyball game or a 
coffee house and proceed to check it out for a "few 

The term papers, those I'll start tomorrow. Well, now six 
weeks of tomorrows have passed and you are, no farther 
today than you were yesterday; but you'll start tomorrow! 
How long can it uke to throw together a couple of papers, 
anyway? "Even if I don't finish on time the prof is a good 
friend - hell let me slide." 

$75, and that was only for three books; you better believe 
they are going to get read. The books are cracked and you no 
sooner get into the introduction and find yourself dozing off. 
You tell yourself, "I really don't have to read this to pass, 
I won't need this until after I graduate, if then." The books 
are placed back on the shelf to collect dust and impress 
underclasmen, friends and family. 

The Library has been visited to return your card and 
check up on Sports Illustrated or the Home Journal. There 
just doesn't seem to be the time to sit there. Janet is up on 
her studies, maybe she can help; then always "Doc", 
hell tell you what you want to know. After all you didn't 
come here to spend all your time sitting with your nose in a 

Here you are half way through the semester, bogged down 
with studies, term papers galore and quickly sinking into the 
sunset But, it's only half over - you have seven more weeks 
to go. If you start now you can get caught up and surely pull 
through for finals. Yeah, it can be done - after all, nothing is 
impossible; you just weren't in the right frame of mind, 
things have changed. You are now settled in, nothing to 
distract you. 

What did you say? Pizza and beer? A movie? A coffee 
house? Weil, i guess it can wait until tomorrow!

Homecoming proved to be an interesting day for our 
Golden Bananas. It seems as though the ladies from Penn 
State-Ogontz forgot their goalie. Being i good sport, Coach 
Vellner loaned them one of ours. Who do you think won? — 
We did - 2-0. Unfortunately, the game doesn't count and the 
ladies end up with a league record of 3-1, 6-2 overall. 

Tomorrow will be the last time you will be able to catch 
our Golden Bananas in action as they host Lycoming at 
11:00 a.m. Come on out as they finish up their finest season 


by M. D. McManiman 

Although there was no competition for our ladies this 
Homecoming, they nonetheless took to the fields and track 
to test their running skills. The ladies attacked the 3.S-mile 
course one minute after the men's 5. 2-mile race began. The 
sight of the ladies finishing before the men surely baffled 
some of the fans. 

Leading the way was co-captain )eanne Cranney who, 
despite a sore leg, set a new course record of 20:40. Not far 
behind was Gail Keleher with a time of 21:18 and right on 
her heels was co-captain Sue Wagner. Kathianne Held was 
fourth with a time of 23:06. Lauren Clauson, just coming off 
a badly sprained ankle, put in her best performance of the 
year at 24:29. Brenda Ginner, suffering from tendonitis, was 
hot on Lauren's heels at 24:30 and right behind Brenda was 
Liz Trimble in 24:49. Jean Toutkoushian finished up in 
27:32, Mary Richards in 30:38 and Joanne Lubanki in 31:15. 

It takes a lot of guts to go out there and put out with 
only your teammates as competition. These ladies, mostly 
sophomores, deserve a lot of credit and have rightly earned 
it. A couple of years ago there were but a couple women out 
running. Now, through the efforts of Coach Wilson, Doc and 
the ladies, there is now a new varsity team on campus. Word 
has it that the future looks bright, very bright. 


by Warren D. Lewis 

October 14th and 16th the women's varsity volleyball 
team lost two matches that should have been victories. On 
the 14th the Aggies took on Kings College. The Aggies had a 
2-1 game superiority after three games. Kings College then 
came back to win the match by winning the last two games. 
On the 16th the Aggies had Fairleigh Dickinson University 
down two games to zero. In the third game the Aggies started 
to fall apart once agairr. They lost the third game 15-12. The 
fourth game there was no conversation between team 
members, therefore, there was mass confusion and a total loss 
of concentration. The Aggies then lost the fourth game l$-0. 
The fifth game was the same story with little talk among the 
team members and confusion on the court. The final score of 
the fifth game, 15-11. 

The main team problem is lack of communication on the 
court. Easy shots turn into difficult ones and sometimes 
impossible returns over the net. A second reason several 
volleyball fans mentioned was that the team seemed to lose 
energy after the third or fourth games. Substitution would be 
a big factor if this is the case to rest players periodically if 
they seem to be slumping. 

An individual reason for the team losing is all those missed 
serves. During the periods of Tuesday's and Thursday's game 
there were series of between three to five serves lost 
CONSECUTIVELY. There Is no reason for this at all. This is 
the main reason why the Aggies cannot play catch-up volley- 
ball. If you don't keep the serve, there is no way you can 
expect to win. 

FLASH! On Monday, October 20th, women's volleyball 
defeated Northeast Christian Junior College 3 games to 2 for 
their first win! 

SOCCER: One Disappointment 
after Another 

by feff Montagnoli 

Homecoming weekend brought many disappointments 
due to the poor weather. A big disappointment was felt by 
the Aggie soccer team which lost another game on Saturday 
to Kings College. The game was tied at the half M. The 
Aggie scorer was Dan Persons. A second-half penalty shot by 
Kings, and the rain, washed out the game with a 2-1 score. 

The Aggies had lost their previous game on Wednesday 
the 15th to FDU, with a 5-1 score. The single Aggie goal was 
made by Terry Muth. Their record is a dismal 1-8. 

Come on Aggies - Let's pull it together! 


by M. D. McManiman 

For those of you who don't follow football, it is about 
time you opened your eyes. The Aggies of DVC have arrived. 
Believe it or not, there may be a MAC champion ri^t here 
atOel Val! 

Before the Homecoming crowd the team built up a 22-0 
lead by halftime. By the time the final gun sounded, the 
Aggies had collected tiieir third consecutive MAC shutout 
and raised their MAC Northern Division record to 4-0 
(4-3 overall). 

The defense, lead by Chuck Alpuche and Al Apptegate, 
helped hold the Vikings to 175 yards rushing as well as pick- 
ing up two safeties. The defense also recovered 3 Upsala 

Eric Reynolds paced the offense with 93 yards and 2 TD's. 
Also scoring for the Aggies were Tom Houpt (1-yard run), 
Tom Kirk (3-yard run), and Greg Salicondro on a 1-yard pass 
from Tom O'Neill. 

Tomorrow the steel curtain will be looking forward to 
crucifying the Crusaders of Susquehanna for win number 
five. Game time for Moose Family Day and Merchants Day 
will be l:30p..m. Come down to the Stadium and see the 
Pennridge Marching Band at halftime!! 

MEET, NOW 8-3-1 

by M. D. McManirrran 

Rainy, dreary and dull, that was the weather this Home- 
coming. Unfortunately, the last two adjectives can also be 
used for the Cross Country meet against Kutztown State 
College. Realistically it wasn't all that bad. The worst part of 
the day was being embarrassed in front of the Homecoming 

Kutztown, a Division II college, plain and simple out- 
classed our Division III harriers - capturing seven of the top 
ten positions. Jim Parsons, for the first time this season, was 
not the first to cross the finish line. Jim was third with a time 
of 28:45, almost a minute behind Kutztown's Rick Furka, 
who missed breaking the course record (27:46) by two 
seconds. Freshman Ed Kuri was our next man across in the 
eighth spot at 28:51, his best performance this season. Rich 
Weaver was next in the tenth spot with a time of 30:19. 
Rounding out the scoring was Rich Weidman, eleventh at 
30:49 and Carl Pellington twelfth at 31:17, his best ever 
performance on the home course. So, although they lost 
44-18, there was some sunshine in the day. Doc Berthold 
said it best, "As we celebrate victories we also take our 

NOTE: Tomorrow will close out the season for our harriers. 
See them as they try to avenge last year's close loss to 
Susquehanna and raise their record to 9-3-1. Showdown is at 
8:00 before halftime - Be there! MAC's are next on Nov. 8 
at Chester Park, Chester, Pa. Let's go, guys and gals!!!

Rutgers University held an 
intercollegiate horse show on 
October 12, 1980 at Briar- 
wood Farm, Oldwick, N.J. Our 
team fell short by one point 
to tie and two to win the 
Reserve Champion College to 
Centenary. We are still a strong 
team this year, fighting in the 
top three spots over 20 teams. 
Results are as follows: Dawn Perusek, capuin, placed 4th 
in Novice on the flat and 2nd over fences as a point rider; 
Laurie Jackson, co-captain, placed 5th in Novice on the flat 
and 4th over fences; Pat McKeown placed 4th in Novice on 
the flat but did not place over fences; Kathy Miller did not 
place in Advanced W.T.C.; Mary Claire Horning placed 4th in 
Advanced W.T.C.; Robert Bodine did not place in Beginner 
W.T.C.; Sherri Eskensen placed 2nd in Advanced W.T.C. as a 
point rider; Marie Bergen placed 3rd in Advanced W.T.C; 
Lisa Zucchero placed 3rd in Advanced W.T.C; Bernadette 
Bulvin placed 2nd in Advanced W.T.C. as a point rider; Hope 
Boyne placed 3rd in Beginner W.T.C. as a point rider; and 
Betsy Nihoda placed 3rd in Novice on the flat as a point rider 
and 4th over fences. Carolyn Corkey went but due to prob- 
lems could not show. 

The whole team deserves a hand because we've got the 
spirit. Riding can be an individual sport but the team is a 
whole this year due to all the riders, the captain, co-captain, 
and our coach, Mrs. Susan Clark.

FARM #2 

Are you still searching for an old house or a bam on 
Farm #2? Are you still wondering where Farm #2 is? You 
are not alone. 

The area originally known as Farm #2 is used by the 
Horticulture Department and is part of their orchards. These 
38 acres known as Farm #2 were purchased and donated to 
the school in 1905 by Max Schoenfcld. This great benefactor 
also purchased and donated to the school in the memory of 
his wife the 40 acres known as Farm #1 in 1904 and In 1907 
he purchased and donated to the school the 1 63 acres known 
as Farm #3.

For those of you who seldom pass through Lasker Hall, 
there is a new addition. With the new phone system the old 
operator room has become vacant. Unfortunately, there was 
about as much room there as there is in a crackerjack box! 
The solution?! Knock down a wall here, add a partition, 
move a couple doors and - presto, a spacious new office 
appears. A new home for Mr. Fulcoly. But wait a minute, 
what happened to Mrs. Adams and Mrs- Meskill? 

The Purchasing Department is now located on the second 
floor of Lasker. Trot up the steps, turn left at Accounting, 
make another left at the "T", slow down, and just before 
you reach Alumni, there they are nestled in their new office 
on the left. 

All this moving and one almost forgets about Mr. 
Falcoly's old office! What is to become of it? As of now, 
there are no plans on who will be the lucky new tenant! Any

For as long as I could recall, the frightful pain in irty 
abdonnen had been an annual inconvenience. Now, at the age 
of twenty, I was reaching the point where I questioned 
whether the icy agony which afflicted me on the last night of 
each October was mere coincidence, or of some unknown 
significance. Since arriving at college three years ago, the pain 
had at least doubled in intensity, as if my surroundings were 
related to it. Now more than ever I desired to find the source 
of my unusual illness. 

On the night of the thirty-first I went to bed very late. 
The entire dorm was perfectly silent and I quickly became 
drowsy. The pain in my stomach had failed to r,eappear. But 
soniething was not right. After nearly ten minutes, I realised 
that I had been listening to a distant and muffled series of 
sounds being repeated over and over. I remained motionless 
and listened intently. There was a rapid creaking noise, a 
crash, and a sickly choking scream. Rising, I noticed I was 
suddenly outside in the night, walking rapidly toward the 
apple orchard. I did not even stop to consider how I had 
gotten there; I was too overcome with purpose. A black 
suit covered a body which was much too aged and muscular 
to be my own. My vision was tunneled by a black cloth hood 
which I could not remove. Running across each palm was a 
strip of torn red skin. Its origin did not concern me. I now 
headed across the open fields toward the forest atop the hill. 
A chilly north wind whipped ragged black clouds violently 
across a glowing Hunter's moon. In the ghostly light I could 
see that the area was different. Two days ago, a vast field of 
winter wheat had sprawled across these acres. Now all that 
remained were rows of chopped corn pointing toward an 
unfamiliar forest of massive oaks. With each step taken I 
became more aware of the ripping pain beneath my chest 
returning once again. It soon grew to such a magnitude that I 
was drawing air in frenzied gasps, but an unseen force kept 
pulling me forth. 

She stood motionless in a swirl of leaves where the moon- 
light sliced through a break in the storm clouds. Her face was 
young, pale, and enchantingly beautiful. Long blonde hair 
tumbled over her shoulders and mingled with the nighttime 
autumn wind. Her slender body was wrapped in a dark, 
tattered cloak which seemed to melt into the cold night. I 
knew this girl. I knew her very well. I ransacked my memory 
to recall her name, but it did not come. Who was this curious 
and lovely creature? It was as if one hundred years had 

Suddenly I again became aware of the noises which had 
drawn me here: the creak, crash, and cry. Immediately it 
stopped. Her eyes seemed focused on infinity, and then they 
instantly shifted to a cruel, smiling stare. She pointed and I 

The wind moaned in the trees as I turned and saw a tiny 
village of stone cottages. Never in my walks on the school's 
property had I seen houses in the forest. Yet here they were, 
and I recognized each one. And I heard screams, and the 
weeping of women, and for some reason I began to enjoy it. 
My hands began to sting. I looked down. They were clasping

MOZART Mr. Terry Allworthy 

by Jerry Robbins 

Terry Allworthy is the new 
band director this year at DVC. 
Mr. Allworthy is originally 
from England; this fact is 
easily detectable by his 
British accent. He is present- 
ly employed by the Youth 
Correctional Institute in An- 
nandale, New jersey, and 
heard about the opening at 
Delaware Valley College 
through Mrs. Roberts and 
Trenton State College. He 
now leads the group of musicians that compose the DVC 

Commenting about the present band, Mr. Allworthy said 
that everyone is giving 100% of himself to his performance. 
Presently there are about fifteen active members of the band. 
Mr. Allworthy would like to increase that number to fifty 
active participants because the band is limited in what it can 
perform. Mr. Allworthy would also like a decent place to 
practice. The band currently rehearses in Mandell 114. For 
each practice the band must move the chairs out ot the way 
and then move them back into place after the practice. Mr. 
Allworthy also said that he is trying to present as diverse a 
selection of music as possible, "everything from The Muppets 
to Mozart." 

On November 8th, the band will be playing for the soccer 
team, a first-time occurrence at DVC. Could Mr. Allworthy's 
love of soccer and the fact that he is a soccer official have 
anything to do with the choice to play at a soccer game??? 
The band also will be giving a Christmas performance 
with the Chorale. Although it is not definite, Mr. Allworthy 
also stated that he would like to give a performance for a 
group at the hospital. His heart is certainly in the right place. 
After talking with a member of the "low brass section" of 
both this year's and last year's band, I found that the band 
this year is not much different from last year's. Although this 
year there are fewer people, the quality of the band is about 
the same. All the members of the band have the "spirit, 
spunk and all that kind of stuff," to succeed. Even though 
there are not enough people to do what they really want, 
they have a good time in the band. 

So if you are undecided about joining the band, why not 
give it a try and join Mr. Allworthy and his group of music- 
makers. Practices are at 4:15 p.m. every Tuesday and 
Thursday in Mandell 1 14. 


With regret, we acknowledge the resignation of Mr. 
Frank Grau, Chairman of the Department of Orna- 
mental Horticulture. Dr. John Mert/ will serve as 
Acting Chairman in addition to his current duties.

a thick length of rope. I looked up again. I was on the village 
common now. A brilliant bonfire illuminated the gallows 
before me. I stared in grim amusement at the man whose feet 
dangled before me. A crowd of spectators watched, their 
faces reflecting horror and disgust. I laughed heartily as a 
blonde women pushed her way forward. She was screaming 
as tears poured down her heart-shaped white face. There was 
a flash as she produced a sparkling stiletto from the folds of 
her cloak. My mind quickly warned me to stop her, but my 
arms remained still at my sides. Ever so slowly the blade slid 
forward, but I could not react. A roar of outrage did not help 
my furious attempts to move. The blade entered my stomach. 
She withdrew it and plunged it forward again and again, 
slowly twisting and turning the weapon. Finally, I grabbed 
her shoulders and plunged my fingers into them, then fell 
down unconscious. 

I awoke at the forest's edge. My fingernails were torn 
away from the flesh, but bits of bark remained on the open 
wounds. There was no village, no people, no woman, no 
punctures in my stomach. Only silence and the lights of the 
campus in the distance. A nearby owl saw me rise to my feet 
and then flew into the forest. It began to rain.

Barry Brown, a sophomore 
Business Administration major, 
is the instfitctof of the D.V.C. 
Marshall A-ts Club, which 
meets eve* Monday and Wed- 
nesday fvjningat 7;00 p.m. in 
Samuel Lounge. Barry has held 
his bLtckbelt in Taekwndo for 
over 2'/2 years and has been 
traming since ninth grade. The 
routine is rigorous and is done 
five days a week for two hours 
a shot. The students who take advantage of the Marshall Arts 
program gain knowledge and skill - with main emphasis on 
building a strong character and a strong spirit along with 
mastering speed and simplicity. 

Barry believes that people have many misconceptions 
about the Marshall Arts. Most people feel that the program is 
designed for destruction and fighting alone. This is not so; 
the Marshall Artist can be beat by another person who does 
not have the knowledge, the skill or the training; he, as a 
person, may simply be a better tighter. What the individual 
has with training in Marshall Arts is that he gains the ability 
to logically think and calculate positions through with a 
degree of accuracy and win a fight or tournament mentally. 
Barry started in the Marshall Arts primarily for physical 
fitness. He believes that a person's physical well-being is very 
important and is an airea thai needs to be improved in our 
society t9ddy. As a result of his intense training, Barry feels a 
sense of respect or humble pride. His instructor also stressed 
main emphasis on the physiological, aspect, physical aspect 
and later (after the others have been mastered), the self- 
defense aspect. 

Coming from West Philadelphia, though his neighborhood 
is not in a high risk area, Bariy feels more comfortable with 
his knowledge of Taekwndo at hand - just in case. He 
enjoys the city for the closeness of the people around him - 
yet he likes Del Val because it supplies the rural atmosphere 
with wildlife and room that the city cannot offer. 

Barry is an interesting and talented guy, who has a lot to 
offer the students and surrounding community of Delaware 
Valley College.

The literature of an educational institution, such as a high 
school or college (for example, Delaware Valley College), is 
to inform the students, promote activities of the college and 
support the college by showing school spirit. The Ram Pages, 
for example, should tell the students of upcoming events and 
be complete with time and location. To promote activities of 
the college and the surrounding community should be the 
primary concern of the newspaper. The most important job 
of the newspaper is to support the activities of the institution 
which it represents. This includes social, academic and sport- 
ing activities. The spirit and unification of all the interests on 
campus should bubble over in every article of the paper. 

The paper is NOT an outlet for the frustrations of the 
newspaper staff or a place to air their views. We understand 
that this article, in itself, reflects its author's views, but we 
know this explains the proper use of this important media of 
the campus. Sarcasm should not be used as an excuse for the 
articles presently appearing in our paper. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Robert F. Galdi and 
Francine Cranney 

The purpose of an Institutional publication Is to present 
all the facts, from every angle, from the available information. 
It is not the obligation of a publication to mask the copy to 
make it sugar sweet so that no one is offended. When a team 
performs poorly, a social event "bombs", or something goes 
wrong in academia, that is how it is going to be reported. 
Likewise, when something Is successful we share in the joy

The Editors 

Dear Editor, 

After reading last week's Ram Pages, I am appalled by the 
ignorance and pettiness of my fellow students. I am involved 
with every athletic team on campus, have friends in every 
major, and this insight allows me to say that our athletes are 
gracious, sociable and open-minded. In short, they get along 
with everyone else and ask for nothing but support. 

What I have to say is extremely important but too many 
people are afraid to say it ... so I will! Too many students at 
DVC believe that what they do is best and no other endeavor 
is good enough. We should, instead, try our best and still 
accept other's points of view. 

Our freshman hockey player would bow down to Coach 
Vellner if she had to spend just one day at football practice 
and see that because of people like her. Coach Wilson's 
players are put far under that proverbial pedestal, to fight 
their way ^o the top. 

Before our "Weekend Athlete" wrote his letter to the 
editor, he/she should have stopped to realize that the football 
team doesn't get to other sports events because they practice 
Monday to Friday, 3 p.m. -7 p.m., play from 11 a.m. -4 p.m. 
on Saturdays, and watch films on Sunday, ail while getting 
good grades in school (many of which are agricultural 
classes!). So I ask you "Ag Major", when do they have 

I agree with the "DVC Spiriter" that Coach Wilson's 

speech put a damper on the enthusiasm at the rally, but 

everything he said was true and needed to be said. Only the 

guilty were embarrassed. . , , 

(contmued next column) 


This past week a tetter was forwarded to the paper from 
Winnie Binktey of New Britain. Ms. Binkley's letter was in 
reference to the General Westmoreland presentation of 
Octot)er 8th. The basic concern of the letter was the poor 
acoustics of the )ames Work Gymnasium. This problem has 
been recognized and alternatives are being looked into by 
Student Gqvernment. 

It must be realized that the college lacks the necessary 
accommodations for affairs of this nature. All efforts of the 
college are working diligently on this problem and it is a 
priority of the Board of Trustees. Hopefully the next 
building you see constructed will be a new student center. 
Let's keep our fingers crossed. 

We received an editorial this week by Jeanne Cranney on 
the constant mistakes in the women's Cross Country articles 
published thus far. A complaint was also filed on last week's 
article entitled "Lady Harriers Prep for MAC's", particularly 
the last paragraph, dealing with the courage and dedication of 
the ladies. 

To begin with, I admit the mistakes. They were my fault 
and I take full responsibility for them. I am sorry for the 
inconvenience and possible embarrassment they may have 
caused team members. I made assumptions and, unfortunate- 
ly, you had to pay the price. As for name mistakes, they are 
done at the printer's and are not always caught by printing 
time. We are changing the way the copy is proofread, and 
hopefully this will improve this and other problems. 

Printed below are the corrected times and names for the 
two home meets in question. Also is a letter from Jeanne 
received about October 20th. At the time I was unaware the 
facts desired were on the Cross Country bulletin board, the 
reason it wasn't in last week. Once again, I am sorry! 

M. D. McManiman 
P.S. I am a team member and although it appears I don't 
care, I am on your side. Good luck in the MAC's and 
in the coming seasons. 

Dear Editor, 

I would like to take this opportunity to correct the 
'correction in the fifth edition of the Ram Pages which said, 
"Back in the second issue, the times given for the ladies' 
Cross Country team were one minute off, in their favor." 
t, along with several of my teammates would like the times 
printed in the paper to reflect our true efforts. The times 
printed in the second issue were one minute off, to our 
detriment, however. With the printing of your correction, 
our times are now two minutes slower than we actually ran; 
which over a 3.5 mile course poorly reflects our accomplish- 

Many of you probably don't think that this is important, 
but to us it is. For the most part, our ladies have had only 
competition between each other and not from other colleges. 
This is due to the newness of our team and the fact that other 
college teams had already made contracts which couldn't be 
broken. The ladies on the team have all been very understand- 
ing about the situation and we all appreciate the work that 
Doc Berthold, Coach Wilson and his staff, especially Mrs. 
Ermigiotti, have done to try to get us competition. In many 
ways it is harder for us to go out and run solely against each 
other than it would be to run against another team. We would 
appreciate your support in this matter because for those of 
you who I have heard say, "You're not really running 
tomorrow, well only against yourselves," I would like to say 
that sometimes it's much harder that way!

(continued from previous column) 

The division of our football players from the rest of the 
student body that our "UnAthletic Aggie" talked of is 
brought about solely by jealousy. 

The team does not receive special scholarships; they have 
grants and loans just as every other student does. They can 
study Business Administration anywhere but come to Del Val 
because we have the best football program in the area. And, 
last and most important, everything football has they've 
acquired by themselves. Clothing, equipment, and "the 
Stadium" came from Friends of Football, a group of devoted 
parents, neighbors and friends. 

Our team is first in thfe league so far this year; just think 
how much further they could get with all of us Aggies behind 
them in unison.

Editors' Note: We also received a letter from Mark Dobies, 
whose letter was similar to the one presently published. 
Lack of space did not permit us to print both letters in their

FARM #3 

The history of the property referred tc as Farm #3 can be 
traced back to the time of William Penp Perm sold the land, 
around the year 17O0, to Jeremiah Langhorne, after whom 
the nearby town of Langhorne is nan e.. Langhorne sold the 
property to the Shcwells in 1730. 

The property remained in the hands cf the Shewell family 
for 156 years. In 1729, Robert Sl^wel 'cuilt the house which 
still adorns the property. He called tf.c structure "Painswick 
Hall" after the house he left in England. The house became 
so famous while the Shewells owned it that a letter needed 
only to be addressed "Painswick Hall" to reach the Shewells. 

The Shewells were learrted and wcilthy for those days. 
Robert Shewell was a Justice of the Peace and performed 
weddings in "Painswick Hall". The Shewells were friends of 
the Indians and during the terriby cold winter nights the 
braves slept in the warmth generated by the Shewells huge 
kitchen fireplace. The braves, in return, gave much venison to 
their hosts. Walter Shewell, Robert's father, was famous for 
his crabapple cider, and he served it generously to the 
numerous visitors during the cider season. 

In 1886, the property was sold to the Martins, who then 
sold the property to the National Farm School (now DVC) 
in 1907. The property consists of 163 acres and is located 
beyond the orchard. 

The building once known as "Painswick Hall" is presently 
occupied by Mr. Gilbert, Superintendent of Livestock, and 
Mr. York, Superintendent of Farms. 

Also on the property are six barns. The newest barn, 
completed in April and dedicated earlier this month, is used 
exclusively for beef cattle. Another complex is used to house 
sheep and herd bulls and for hay storage. There is a judging 
pavilion which gets much student use during field days but is 
used mainly for storage. There are two swine barns. One is 
used for gestating and breeding; the other is used for farrow- 
ing, nursing and finishing. Lastly, there is the goat barn which 
is used to house goats and sheep and to store hay.

"If cieaed, I promise . . ." 

by Martha Gehringer 

The election is fast approaching and the signs are every- 
where. TV is being bombarded by campaign commercials that 
the candidates hope you stay and listen to their views rather 
than going to the fridge during. The headlines read of the 
resulu of the latest polls - Dewey leads Truman 36% to 
35.7% with 44% undecided. 

Despite what Bob Hope or any other comic may say, the 
election is serious. The candidates chosen will have a chance 
to shape history. This year the voters will be choosing the 
president. For president this year there are the two major 
party candidates; Ronald Reagan for the Republicans and 
Jimmy Carter for the Democrats. Also this year a third-party 
candidate is making a serious run for the presidency — )ohn 

Do y<Hj know what the candidates stand or sit for? Their 
views and plans, which are the basis for a voter's selection, 
can be complete opposites or they can be very similar. Here 
in an unbiased form are the major candidates and their views. 

John B. Anderson is the representative to the U.S. 
Congress from Illinois' 16th District. If elected he plans to 
fight inflation by balancing the budget in 1981 and reforming 
the Ux structure. To the problem of unemployment, he feels 
we must emphasize the resources and training for the low 
income and teenagers. He supports ERA and a woman's 
choice to decide on abortion. He feels more research ^ould 
go into nuclear fusion, and that the pollution standards 
should not be lowered. Anderson also advocates a strong 
armed forces but opposes the B-1 bomber, the MX missile, 
and the draft 

lames E. Carter was the governor of Georgia and is the 
incumbent president. If reelected he plans to increase the 
national defense budget every year for the next four years. 
He is in favor of, and has renewed the draft. In the past four 
years he worked out a peace treaty for the Middle East at 
Camp David, saved the Social Security system, and placed a 

windfall profits tax on big oil. During his administration he 
has also reduced oil imports and raised the minimum wage. 
Carter supports the grain embargo and ERA. 

Ronald R. Reagan was a two-term governor of California. 
If elected he plans to eliminate the overly burdensome regula- 
tions on agricufture. To fight inflation, he feels a reduction in 
federal spending and an across-the-board cut in tax rates is 
needed to restore incentive to produce, which will in turn 
increase the number of jobs. Reagan will eliminate energy 
price controls, and feels a need for exploration of new 
sources of energy, and Social Security reformation. He 
opposes abortion and supports a pro-life amendment and he 
supports equal rights for women but not ERA. He is in favor 
of the MX missile because he feels America's strength is a 
good deterrent to war. 

So there you have it. If you still don't know who to vote 
for, take a look at all the other candidates and choose one. 
The choice is yours in Election '80. 

This is a list of the candidates as they appear on the New 
Jersey ballot.

Seafood Shanfy 

by Michael Jaskolka 

"One nibble and you're hooked," and I'm sure hooked on 
Seafood Shanty. Seafood Shanty is an all-occasion restaurant 
and is byfar my most favorite place to dine. Once you try it, 
you too will be hooked. 

The menu offers every aspect of seafood you can imagine, 
from an old French peasant fish stew (bouillabaisse) to 
Alaskan crab legs. Jhey guarantee that all their seafood is 
fresh, and they serve only the type of seafood that is in 
season. I enjoyed the shrimp feast ($7.95), which had 18 
fresh hot shrimp in the rough. My date "dug" her clams from 
the Rhode Island Clambake ($6.95). Main entrees include a 
baked potato. «o*? Ctrilish chips, cole slaw, a salad, and hot 
bread and butter. Seafood Shanty has two types of salads - 
a green salad or hearts of lettuce with house dressing. I 
recommend the latter. Also included on the menu is 
swordfish "the king of fish" ($9.95); another favorite is 
fried stuffed shrimp ($7.95), fried shrimp tempura ($9.95), 
and many more fish, clam, and shell fish delights. After your 
meal you can enjoy a good cup of coffee from an offering of 
six international coffees. 

Seafood Shanty is located in the Kings Shopping Plaza in 
Warminster. To get there from Delaware Valley College, take 
202 North to 611 ; go South on 61 1 for about 8 miles, and it 
will be on the left-hand side of the road. 

No reservations are required, and they serve until 10 p.m. 
on week nights and Sundays. On Friday and Saturday nights 
Seafood Shanty is open till midnight.

One thing that Christians get labeled as is stuffy people 
who don't have much fun. I think my first article should 
destroy any myths about Christians and help students here 
realize that a Christian isn't someone to be afraid of or to 

One question I have to ask anyone who reads this is, 
"Don't you have fun playing sports or getting together with 
friends or going places or doing things, such as hobbies?" 
There is nothing wrong with having a good time, and don't 
let anyone fool you! The Lord doesn't put rocks in front of 
your feet all the time when you are in a game. In fact, God 
wants you to do the best you can in everything! 
■*.• ' 

Another question is this: "Have you ever talked to a 
.Christian?" Very few people in this world think that they are 
boring or haughty. How do you know about someone if you 
don't talk to him? 

These concepts don't apply necessarily to Christians, but 
to everyone. You can have fun in sports, hobbies, trips and 
many more activities. You also do not know anyone else 
unless you talk to that person. This is my message to you 
this week. 

SPECIAL NOTE: To all sisters in the faith of jesus. There 
will be an informal Women's Christian Study Group forming 
on campus. Check your mail box or D.V.C. Christian Fellow- 
ship for time and place.

The hayride sponsored by the sophomore class on Friday 
the 24th went over very well with at least 140 persons having 
a hay-throwing, hair-shaking, stuff-lhe-hay-down-the-pants 
great time. Your undercover (but in this case, under-hay) 
reporter was right along within the hayride having a good 
time covering this story, or should 1 say being covered by it. 
There was such a good turnout that the two wagons went 
around twice. A consensus was taken and the mood was that 
more events such as this hayride should occur. 


Speaking of hayrides, the Future Farmers Club of 
America will be sponsoring a hayride November 24th, right 
before Thanksgiving break. Yahoo!!! This one promises to be 
very enjoyable. Remember, it's going to be a lot colder in 
November than it is now, so don't forget that special some- 
one to snuggle up with under the hay. Okay? 

Watch for signs in November.

Some problems present- 
ed to Student Government 
through the Commuter 
Complaint Box were the 
lack of a clock in Segal 
Hall as w^ell as the unde- 
pendable hours of the snack bar in the evening. 

Well, those of you in need of a clock in Segal Hall will be 
glad to know that we lost our clock via the five finger dis- 
count. A big thanks to those who were involved in this 
system from those in Segal Hall. On the lighter side, Mr. 
Tasker has ordered a cipck and it should be here shortly. 

Now for the snack bar - Those of you who are stranded 
here over dinner have a few alternatives at the moment: 
(1) go to the dining hall, (2) go out in Doylestown if you're 
fortunate enough to have a car, or (3) Sit in Segal Hall and 
wait till they open at 6:30, 6:45, or miybe 7:00 o'clock. The 
hours of the snack bar are being looked mt© and I'll keep you 
up-to-date with any changes. 

P.S. Student Government thanks for our gripe box. 


We would like to bring to the attention of those students 
interested in farming and who do not have farming experi- 
ence that beginning this fall they are given the opportunity to 
observe and even participate in various farming operations on 
our College's farms. This is the result of a program developed 
by the Agronomy Department and Mr. Gross, the farm 
manager, in the hope that the students will avail themselves 
of this much needed farming experience. As part of this 
program the students will be welcome to observe the farming 
operations taking place on our farms such as seedbed prepara- 
tion, fertilization, planting, application of pesticides, hay and 
grain harvesting, etc., and whenever possible they would be 
given the opportunity of operating the equipment. 

To make it easier for the students to find out what is 
going on at any given time on the farms, a map of the 
College's farms has been placed on the bulletin board beside 
.Dr. Prundeanu's office. Room 115, Agriculture Building, 
together with the updated information on the farming opera- 
tions taking place during the respective day, the exact 
location, and the time when they are taking place. Additional 
information can be obtained from Mr. Hcpner, Mr. Gross, or 
Dr. Prundeanu. 

We urge all students and especially those majoring in 
Agronomy, Animal Husbandry, and Dairy Husbandry to avail 
themselves of this unique program and participate in as many 
farming operations as the time permits them.

Agronomy Department

The itcnc wai set at 
Cedai Crest College 
tor the Northeast 
Division Hotkey 
fherc was a three- 
way deadlock for 
first place between 
Moravian, Muhlen- 
berg and Delaware 
Valley. Only one 
team could walk away victorious and the victor, when the 
dust cleared, would be our own Del Val. 

Moravian and Muhlenberg placed each other first in 20- 
minute halves. At the end of regulation time, they had played 
to a 0-0 deadlock. The game was forced into a flick-off 
which Muhlenberg won, 4-3. Delaware Valley then played 
Muhlenberg and won this game 3-0 to claim the champion- 

The team was vers psyched up to win this game and used 
this flow of emotion to shutout Muhlenberg. The team scored 
within the first five minutes of the game, and from then on it 
was an uphill battle. Sue Ann Leed scored two goals and 
Diane Bradley scored the other goal for Del Val. 

The next game was this past Wednesday when they played 
F&M in the MAC championships. If time permits, we wi 
have the score. 

NOTE: Next week wc will have a feature article on our 
Golden Bananas. Keep your eyes peeled!!!

Two fourth-quarter turnovers by the Susquehanna Univer- 
sity Crusaders were turned into two touchdowns, as the 
Aggies took a I 2-0 decision. 

Driving rain, high winds, and near impossible field condi- 
tions kept both teams silent for three quarters, but just two 
plays into the fourth, the Aggies recovered a fumble at the 
Crusaders' 40-yard line. Five plays later, Eric Reynolds, the 
day's leading ground gainer, went 22 yards off right tackle 
with 1 2:26 remaining for a touchdown. 

The Aggies' Rod Bates intercepted a Crusader pass and 
ran it to the three-yard line before being pulled down, but his 
run was denied by a penalty which moved the ball back to 
the 28-yard line. Then with 2:35 remaining, Tom Kenny 
rolled left and found an opening for an 8-yard touchdown. 

The 12-0 score boosted the Aggies MAC Northern Divi- 
sion record to 5 and (5-3 overall) and was the fourth 
straight conference shutout. The Aggies have outscored their 
opponents in the last four games 107-0. 

Twelve seniors played their last game at lames Work 
Memorial Stadium. They are Mark Dobies, Tom Kenny, Jim 
Ya/ujian, Greg Salicondro, Les Davies, Tom Houpt, George 
Dcmctriades, Mike Bergamo, Gary Waiters, Chuck Alpuche, 
Frank Vellucci, and Warren Robertson. 

Tomorrow the Aggies will be traveling to )uniata (3-1 in 
the MAC Northern Division) to take on the Indians. 

Chuck Alpuche was named E.C.A.C. Division III Co- 
Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in the 
38-0 win over Upsala two weeks ago. This marked the fourth 
time this season that Chuck has gained recognition from 

Eric Reynolds, the Aggies sophomore running back, . 
gained 83 yards last week in the 1 2-0 win over Susquehanna 
University, placing him just 39 yards from tying the single 
season rushing record at DVC of 709 yards set by John Nice

Last Saturday v/as not exactly the most ideal day for any 
outdoor activity. Our football and cross country teams 
braved the weather to host the Crusaders of Susquehanna. 

The harriers ran, slipped, slid, walked and swam to victory 
downing the visitors 23-32. The runners found the meaning 
of cross country as they had to wade through a 3-foot deep, 
8-foot wide stream. Hills and natural drain ways also made the 
course interesting. 

Jim Parsons was the first to conquer the deluge in 29:18. 
Rich Weaver was second in 29:55. Ed Kuri was fourth at 
31:06 with Carl Pellington in the seventh spot at 31:35. Rich 
Weidman was ninth in 31:48 to round out the scoring, jim 
Trainer was fourteenth joverall with a time of 32:45, his best 
effort on the home course. Chip Cowher, who missed the last 
previous two meets because of illness, battled it out to finish 
in 33;20, and right behind him was Al Reinhart in 33:41. 

The season over, the top twelve are preparing for MAC's 
on November Sth at Chester Park, Delaware County, Pa. Our 
team will send the top eight. Good Luck! 

Our harriers compiled a 9.-3-1 record this year, an improve- 
ment over last year's 8-5 record!

With MAC'S November Sth, our lady harriers braved the 
weather for some fine competition against themselves. Lead- 
ing the way was Jeanne Cranney in 21:59; next was Gail 
Keleher in 22:48. Sue Wagner was third in 23:11 with 
Kathianne Held close behind in 23:39. Lauren Clawson 
finished the sloppy 3.5 mile course next in 25:17. Brenda 
Givler was right on her trail in 25:22, with Sue Kulp next in

Lafayette College held a I. M.S. A. horse show at Hill 
Meadow Stable in East Stroudsburg, Pa. on October 19, 1980. 
To say the least, we've got it all. We took High Point College 
again with 27 points. Also in this show. Dawn Perusek took 
High Point Rider, and the team walked away with flying 
colors. Holly, the coach's dog and our mascot, brought us 
luck. Results are as follows: 

Dawn Perusek placed 1st in Novice on the flat and 1st 
over fences as a point rider; Laurie Jackson placed 2nd in 
both Novice on the flat and fences; Pat McKeown placed 2nd 
in Novice on the flat and 6th over fences; Steve Homesack 
placed 5 th in Novice on the flat and over fences; Margie 
Grontkowski placed 3rd in Beginner W.T.C. as a point rider; 
Lynda Romberg placed 1st in Advanced W.T.C. as a point 
rider; Kathy Miller placed 3rd in Advanced W.T.C. and moved 
into the Novice division; Carolyn Corkey did not place in 
Advanced W.T.C. but recently moved into this tougher divi- 
sion; Jean Weisbecker did not place in Advanced W.T.C; and 
Betsy Nehoda placed 3rd in Novice on the flat as a point rider 
and 1st over fences. 

Centenary College came In as Reserve Champion College. 
Twenty colleges participated. Our coach, Mrs. Susan Clark, 
was voted a member of the Board of Ethics for Division V 

Every show this semester has been limited to the number 
of rides or riders a college could send. We have 30 team 
members and would like to thank alt of them even if they did 
not go to the show. 

The last show of the semester is at Milestone Stable, 
Ferry Road, Doylestown, on November 16th. We would like 
to see some support from our friends.

On Monday, October 20th. it was reported that the 
volleyball team won its game against Northwestern Christian 
College. This was the first win of the season and our team 
really deserves some credit. 

On Wednesday, October 22nd, however, the volleyball 
team dropped a match against Muhlenberg in its last home 
game. In spite of the loss, good performances were put in by 
Patti Rissinger, Jan Nystrand and Wanda Perugini. 

The final scheduled game for the volleyball team is 
Monday, October 27th at Moravian. Let's win this one and 
show them our Aggie spirit!

The stage will be ready again this year for DVC's finest. 
Our 3rd Annual DVC Variety Show will begin promptly at 
8:00 p.m. in the DAVID LEVIN DINING HALL, so be sure 
to get your seats early. This year's show will be romping with 
enthusiasm as "Janitor )im" takes to the floor for the 
"cleaning of the stage" ceremony. Simply 50c will let you in 
the "Golden Gate Theater" to relax and enjoy your friends 
and classmates on stage. They will be competing for cash 
prizes which will be awarded for the best act ($50) and the 
best commercial ($25). Fresh donuts and punch will be 
available to wet your whistle. 

just to give you a brief background on what the 3rd 
Annual DVC Variety Show has been built from, let's look at 
some trivia from the past. In 1977, the talent show was the 
beginning of a new means of identity for the college commu- 
nity. It was a creative way in which the students could 
formally express themselves. During the first show, the 
college's first rock band, Tyro (comprised of on-campus 
residents), claimed first place by bringing the house to its feet 
with its rendition of Animal House songs. The affair was 
attended by one of the biggest turnouts for an on-campus 
social event. 

With so much success from the first show, Terry Domagala 
and her crew began rolling the wheels for show No. 2. It 
included prize rrxoney for both a commercial and an act. Tom 
Pindel soothed the crowd with his fine-fingered picking on 
his guitar, and )im Quartuccio won the hearts of many with 
his hilarious debut of "I am a DVC student" which was a 
commercial winner. 

This year's entertainment includes all walks of life doing 
everything from heads to tails. The acts and commercials 
have been planned out well and much time has been taken to 
make sure that tonight's show will be better than ever. The 
Class of '81 welcomes you all to cheer on your favorite star 
and cast your votes for the chosen few who will reign as this 
year's talent show winners.

FARM #4 

It is unlikely that you have ever visited Farm #4; or, if 
you have, it is unlikely that you knew you were visiting it. 

The reason for this could be that harm #4 is not located 
on the main campus. It is located on Wells Road. It is the 
land located just before the Township Building. 

Originally, the farm included a farmhouse, barn, and the 
Township Building. The farmhouse was lorn down quite 
some time ago, the barn has been torn down just recently. 
The Township Building was sold about fifteen years ago. 

The land is presently used for growing crops. 

FARM #5 

Farm #5, donated by Abraham Erianger, existed for only 
a short time. It is now considered part of Farm #6. Read 
about Farm #6 next week and don't spend much time 
searching for Farm #5. 

Having a good time at the Hallo wc 'en Dance. 

by Dwight Bohm 

The Hallowe'en dance, like the Hauntrd Hall, was a big 
success on Hallowe'en. The dance began a little after 9:30 
p.m. when the band "Magnum" took the stage. By then 
costumed people had begun to fill the gym and soon after the 
place was filled with dancing cra/ies. The people were rocking 
nuts as Magnum poured out the music. 

At about 11:45 p.m. two contests were held - best 
costume, and best group costume. Five semifinalists were 
chosen before the winner and runner-up were notified. The 
best costume was won by Jackie MentO whose spider costume 
was outstanding. The second place prize went to Dominick 
Centonze and his fantastic robot costume. The group cos- 
tume winners were Mr. and Mrs. Boob; they were quite a pair. 

After the contests were over. Magnum resumed its 
fabulous music. 

On the whole, the dance was great. Students enthusias- 
tically showed their support while having a great time. 
Hopefully this kind of spirit will be carried over to the rest of 
the events this semester.

The Poultry Diagnostic Laboratory is a State Contract 
Laboratory funded by the state and the College and operated 
by DVC. It is one of six such laboratories in Pennsylvania, 
with others being located in Sumerdale, Penn State College, 
and the University of Pennsylvania. This laboratory serves as 
an aid to poultry producers in several counties in the area. 

The aim of the laboratory work is to diagnose diseases and 
problems in poultry and the conditions causing them. Treat- 
ment is then directed toward the flock rather than individual 
specimens. This service is available to anyone from the com- 
mercial producer to the backyard flock owner or pet bird 
owner. The work at the laboratory is done by Dr. Kahan, 
Avian Pathologist; Miss Vaughn, technician; and Mrs. Ney, 

The laboratory, open for all students' observations, is not 
a research laboratory, but a working laboratory. Necropsies, 
similar to autopsies, are performed nearly every weekday on 
some type of bird. Regulatory work on the prevention and 
monitoring of diseases is also done here. Senior seminar 
research is also done in the laboratory. The laboratory also 
does work for zoos, including the Philadelphia Zoo. 

Dr. I. Howard Kahan is an Avian Pathologist, a special- 
ized field of veterinary medicine. F^e received his degree from 
the University of Pennsylvania and spent fifteen years with 
the U.S. Poultry Inspection Service. He is now in his thir- 
teenth year at the Poultry Diagnostic Center at DVC. He is 
constantly continuing his education by attending meetings 
and taking courses at various institutes. 
, Dr. Kahan teaches Animal and Clinical Pathology at DVC 
and is Associate Professor ot Poultry Pathology. Dr. Kahan is 
advisor to the Pennsylvania Poultry Association and is 
President-elect ot the Pennsylvania Association of Avian 
Veterinarians. He is also a member of the following organiza- 
tions: Fhe American Association of Avian Pathologists, 
Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association, U.S. Animal 
Health Association and the Southeastern Pennsylvania 
Poultry Association. Dr. Kahan has had several papers pub- 
lished on avian diseases. Along with chickens, the laboratory 
also deals with turkeys, quail, pheasants, ducks, waterfowl, 
pigeons and other species.

Do you ever wonder what goes on behind the closed 
doors of Security? Do they really have a hit list of students? 
Contrary to popular belief they are not plotting their next 
move against the student. What they usually are doing is 
paperwork, answering phones (after hours they are the 
answering service for the College), or on their way out to 
perform some phase of their job. 

Security's jobs can be divided into three basic categories: 
report, refer, ind access. They report conflicts and damage, 
refer people to RA or community coordinators, and grant 
access to students who are locked out or r*eed to get into a 
building. One might also find Security doing such things as 
writing tickets; patrolling the campus, orchards and farms; 
locking or unlocking dorms and other buildings; making fire 
extinguisher checks; and transporting students to riding 
lessons, work study and other college-related functions. To 
expedite some of Maintenance's iobs, Security has taken 
over, to a limited degree, such duttes as lock repairs and bulb 

Twenty-five guards are on th« Security force. Many are 
part-time and 80% of them have b*en at DVC for at least 
three years. The newest addition »s a female guard on the 
third shift. FHer appointment is to make it easier to assist the 
ladies at night. The male guards must be escorted through the 
ladies' dorms, and the female guard wouldn't need to be. 
There are usually at least three guards on duty around the 
clock. The maximum number on duty depends on what must 
be done, and what is happening on campus. 

A major concern of Security is the fire alarm system. 
They are working on a system whereby Miley Security will be 
the backup system, and Security will be notified first with a 
fire monitor board. Heat and smoke detectors are being 
installed in Allman and Mandell. This would allow for earlier 
detection and be part of an automatic fire alarm system. 
Detectors would also give a means of alarm at night and cut 
down on the number of false alarms. The problem with the 
heat and smoke detectors is that they are constantly being 
vandalized. Vandalism impedes the rate that they are put in 
other buildings, such as the dorms. By September '81, how- 
ever, this system should be in effect. 

Security tries to assist students in many ways. They will 
help to jump-start cars. They have a hose for anyone who 
wants to wash his or her car. They are also trying to get a 
CPR and a First Aid course, taught by the Red Cross, 

Security is headed by Chief Pence who has been on the 
force for ten years. His primary responsibility is to administer 
security. He is also on call at all times and enjoys his job 
because he feels he is helping others. 

Security always seems tjo be writing tickets. In the past 
ten years they have tried to eliminate erroneous ticketing. 
Also if one area seems to be prone to ticketing, the cause is 
investigated and tried to be eliminated. This is the reason for 
the elimination of the parking lot behind Cooke and Barness 
where 1 200 tickets were issued. 

They try to cover every situation amply. They are also 
open to suggestions since there is always room for improve-

Dear Editor, A Commentary - 

Freshman year - remember that time? Wide-eyed dis- 
belief and an eagerness to meet sophisticated upperclassmen. 
An annual scene is repeated, to the pleasure ot the sophis- 
ticated upperclassmen - until this year, that is. 

The majority of this year's freshman class, though, seems 
to have bucked tradition. To sum them up in a word: snobs. 
There are also other terms to describe them, but we won't 
use those off-color terms here. 

Come out of your shells, little freshmen; upperclassmen 
aren't that bad. They've gone through freshman year and 
passed both Biology and Chemistry. They might be able to 
share with you some valuable insight that comes only from 
experience. There is also a rumor out that sophs, jrs., and 
even the mature srs., can be a good time at a party. Sorry, 
but freshmen didn't write the book on partying. The author 
of that book is still at large. Perhaps the biggest shock to you 
is the fact that the upperclassmen can actually turn into 
friends if given the chance. So bridge the gap; break down; 
lower yourself if necessary and give the upperclassmen a

Dear Editor: 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the 
members of the student body and faculty/administration 
who supported the women's field hockey team throughout 
the 1980 season, especially on Wednesday, October 29ih, 
when we hosted the 1979 AIAW Division III National 
Champions, Franklin and Marshall College. 

To look across the field of play and see a sideline 100 
yards long filled with people; to look behind and see the 
stands filled with parents and friends was an inspiration to 
the players and to me. The fact that you all remained to see 
the entire game, even after Franklin and Marshall scored their 
third goal to our one, is a tribute to your support. 

The players had it in their hearts to win the game for 
Delaware Valley College, and I am sure you could all sense 
the intensity with which they performed. Although they 
were disappointed with the end result, they know that they 
played the best field hockey game ever. They are proud of 
their accomplishments this season and want you all to know 
that your support helped them achieve what they set out to 
do in September - win the northeast league of the Middle 
Atlantic Conference. 

Many, many thanks to all who made that possible.

The 1980 Livestock Judging team participated in two 
shows recently, including the Eastern National inTimoniuni, 
Maryland, and the Keystone International Collegiate Live- 
stock judging contest in Harrisburg, Pa. Twelve teams parti- 
cipated in both contests. 

At Timonium we were 10th in all classes, 9th in bcil 
cattle, 12th in swine and 11th in sheep. In Harrisburg wc 
were 7th in all classes, 7th in beef cattle, 5th in swine .md 
1 1th in sheep. 

The team is coached by Mr. Gilbert and consists of Ron 
Bates, Phil Keener, Ken Poorman, Thomas Vcrnachio, 
Amanda Dolan, Mary Bragger and Mary Vogel.

Vandalism is usually done by a small group and results in 
the inconvenience of many. It usually occurs in areas that 
belong to no one in particular and everyone in general. 

It is prevalent at Del Val, just like any other place where 
large groups arc; however, the problem isn't as great here as 
some places, but it lb siill a problem. This year, more people 
are reporting vandalism when they see it happen, and the 
proper people are pay ing for more of the damage. 

The lounges art- the primary area for vandalism. Lounges 
are areas of high use and it is difficult to prevent vandalism 
there. Furniture thai lasts in a parent's home for 20 years 
sometimes has trouble lasting in the lounge for 20 minutes. 

The Residence Life Office is in the process of trying to 
upgrade son^e lounges. New fdrniture has been ordered for 
Cooke lounge and its tentative arrival is November 1st. This 
furniture is highly durable, institutional type that can be 
bolted to the floor. Cooke is being used as a trial. If the 
furniture works here, it may be ordered for other lounges. 
Bui after the lounges are fixed, then what? Should they be 
locked up to prevent vandalism? Security can't be every- 
where, so it is up to the students. Good students outnumber 
the jerks who luin it foi everyone else and they are the key in 
this situation. Hopefully they will get angry enough and tired 
enough of paying for this vandalism that they will report the 
childish pranksters who don't think of others. 

If you have any ideas on how to improve the lounges or 
stop vandalism, tell the Residence Life Office. They are will- 
ing to listen. Also, if you see vandalism, report it. You could 
save yourself some bucks.

Welcome to the Exercise Room -~ Ulman 3rd style. 
Steve Ledoux, Matt Gammon, Hoyt Emmons. 

by Dwight Bohm (The Wolf man) 

The ghouls and goblins could be heard from dorms 
around as Ulman 3rd hosted this year's Hauhted Hall. The 
insanity began at 8:00 p.m. and ran until 10:30 p.m., where 
over 100 people passed through the mysterious hall. The 
visitors of the hall were greeted by a couple of devilish 
characters, who then proceeded to escort them throughout 
the Hall's caverns. 

The first stop was the mad scientist's laboratory where he 
tried to convince his guests to try one of his deadly potions. 
The next stop was Dracula's den where he had a few of his 
former victims lying around to greet you. Soon after this the 
people were met by a flying head, which screamed out in 
agony to all around. The ghoul across the hall was stirring his 
cauldron of lizard lip stew, inviting everyone to try it. The 
torture chamber was to follow this, where peasants were 
beaten and beheaded mercilessly. This was the end of the 
room use, but there were plenty of other creatures lurking to 
give you a scare. 

A glowing mummy was seen chasirg a group of people 
down the stairs. A fat robot was caught attacking a youn^ 
female. Ladies of the night roamed the halls relentlessly with 
their mindless servants. The rear giia d ferociously taunted 
anyone wishing to leave, plus many more hideous creatures 
who constantly roamed the dark halls 

All in all, the Haunted Hat! was vjry well done. Special 
credit goes to Tom Fournier, Sieve Ledoux, and Dom 
Centonze who helped get the idea off the ground, but not 
without overwhelming suppoit from the rest of Ulman 3rd. 
Great Job Guys!

1. An unusual small frog is native to the Amazon basin and 
the island of Trinidad, its tadpole form is more than 
three times as large as the adult frog. Its logical - if 
clumsy - name is the paradoxical frog. (Jim Spencer) 

2. If you are ever lost in the woods, here are two tree tips 
that may help. First, "H" stands for hardwood and for 
heat. Second, "S" stands for softwood and for signal. 
Burn hardwoods, such as oak and hickory, to keep warm; 
light softwoods, such as pine or fir, for a signal fire 
because they give off more light. (John T. Bovifont II)

The 1980 Dairy Cattle Judging team participated in three 
intercollegiate judging contests recently, including the 
Eastern States Exposition held in West Springfield, Mass. Out 
of twelve teams, we placed 2nd in Jerseys, 3rd in Guernseys, 
8th in Brown Swiss and 8th in all breeds. 

At the Pennsylvania A. A. Invitational held in Harrisburg, 
Pa., 21 teams competed with Del Val placing 1 1th in all 
breeds. Nancy Bushey placed 2nd in a field of 84 contestants 
in the Jerseys class and missed 1st place by one point. 

During the National Intercollegiate contest held in 
Madison, Wise, 36 teams competed for top honors. Again, 
our team did fairly well, placing 15th in all breeds, 20th in 
Jerseys, 21st in Guernseys, 7th in Brown Swiss and 6th in 

The team is coached by Dr. Harner and consists of Nancy 
Bushey, Beth Grove, Karen Burkert, and Barbara Dusman. 


When Will Our Hostages Be Set Free? 


by Warren Lewis 

It has been over one year that our fellow countrymen 
have been held captive in Iran. With the upcoming Presiden- 
tial election, actions are being taken for their possible release. 
On Sunday, November 2, around 4:00 E.S.T., jimmy 
Carter broadcasted that we are in negotiation with Iran's 
Parliament to try to establish some kind of terms for an 
expedient and safe release of our people, but that will come 
about ohiy under the following conditions: 

1. "Our nation's image and reputation must not be 

2. "We will do it according to our Laws and in accordance 
with our Constitution." 

The meaning of our Laws and Constitution means that 
through the courts all of the law suits against Iran must be 
settled first before we make any turnover of Iranian assets or 

meet any of Iran's conditions. As of November 2, 1980, 
some of Iran's conditions are: 

1. Unfreeze Iranian assets in this country. 

2. Turn over the Shah's fortune. 

3. No retaliation be taken against Iran once all of the 
hostages are freed. 

Meeting these conditions would nrtean several things; 

1. That Jimmy Carter would have gone back on his promise 
to make the exchange legally. 

2. That all of the companies holding suits against Iran would 
turn around and sue the U.S. for assets owed them. 

No matter what the outcome of the November 4th 
election, all we can do is hope that both the present and next 
administrations will maintain control, discipline and, most of 
all, have patience to deal with the whole delicate situation in 
the Mid-East in a fair and rational manner. 



Can screaming rid your 

A group of Cornell U. 
students say they've found 
the perfect way to relieve 
the tensions of academic 
life - organized screaming. 
Every night at 11 p.m., dozens of residents of Cornell's 
North Campus go to their windows and scream. They are 
following the lead of six Cornell freshmen who created the 
Primal Scream Club. The seven charter club members, who 
wear T-shirts identifying themselves as Primates, tried a group 

scream-out one night and enjoyed it so much they put up 
posters on campus inviting other students to join in. The 
Primates endorse a two-minute session of nonsensical scream- 
ing, featuring grunts and groans but no words. 

Wow! Beer ordering for dorm parties. 

At Ohio U., the ordering of beer must now be done in 
accordance with specified limits. Residence Life off icials say 
they will limit orders to one 8-ounce beer of 3.2% beer per 
person per half-hour of the party. No more than two kegs of 
beer can be ordered by a single floor section under new party 
rules and all beer must be sold for at least 50c per glass.

This is your roving reporter taking to the road. November 
1st, the O.H. Club took a trip to Longwood Gardens in 
Kennett Square, Pa. 

Longwood Gardens is one of the foremost horticultural 
displays in the U.S., representing the ultimate expression of a 
country estate garden in the 1920's. Included in the 300 
acres accessible to the public are trees planted in the early 
1800's, spectacular water displays (which were turned off in 
mid-October because of oncoming cold weather), and large 
conservatories with year-round shows of flowers and tropical 
plants. Longwood has been under development since 1906 
when a century-old arboretum was acquired by the late 

industrialist, Mr. Pierre S. duPont, who guided the transfor- 
mation of the surrounding farmland into a country estate 
garden totalling 1 ,000 acres. 

In addition to its horticultural displays, Longwood Gar- 
dens schedules many educational and performing arts func- 
tions. Organ concerts, theatrical productions, horticultural 
lectures, student training programs, adult short courses, 
guided tours, and publications are all important aspects of 
Longwood's public program. 

Longwood Gardens is easy to reach from Del Val. Travel 
time is approximately two hours. Take Rt. 202 South to 
Rt. 322 to Rt. 1 heading for Kennett Square. The park is 
open every day of the year. Outdoor gardens open from 
9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (5 p.m. November 1 through March 31). 
Conservatories open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 


The Pub 11 

by Michael jaskolka 

The Pub II is an inexpensive restaurant with a nice family 
atmosphere. This is a good place to go if a fast food 
restaurant is not your style but don't want to spend a lot on 
a meal. 

The Pub M's menu offers complete dinners or your choice 
of sandwiches, all at reasonable prices. I had the fried chicken 
platter ($3.75) which had 4 pieces of crispy golden brown 
chicken. My date enjoyed the stuffed flounder ($4.25) which 
had a crab meat filling. She was disappointed to find out that 
the fish is fried rather than boiled or baked. Some of their 
other dinners include a roast beef dinner ($3.90), fried 
shrimp ($3.85), seafood combination ($4.95), and a variety 
of salads and cold platters. The Pub II also serves Italian 
specialties topped with its own homemade sauce, some of 
which are veal cordon bleu ($4.50) and spaghetti with 
mushrooms ($3.95). 

It also has a large selection of grilled and open-faced 
sandwiches, which range in price from $1.55 to $3.00. If you 
do order a dinner, it comes with a salad, hot rolls and butter, 
choice of potato and vegetables. 

No reservations are required, and The Pub II is open seven 
days a week from 11 a.m. to 1:45 a.m. on Monday through 
Saturday, and 1 p.m. until 1 :45 a.m. on Sunday. 

To get to the Pub II from Delaware Valley College take

It's More Than a Word 

by Martha Gehringer 

Students, are you involved in "extra-curricular activities"? 
In high school, to be involved in extra-curricular activities 
meant you were somebody, especially if you were on the 
sports teams. At college, getting involved makes life on 
campus a little bit easier because it offers diversity from 
studying and gives the chance to meet more people. 

Relatively speaking, there are a good number of students 
involved in such activities as the judging teams, intramurals, 
clubs, and other organizations. The only poor spot is band 
and chorale. We have a good program for this here with the 
problem being low numbers of participants. It is hoped, by 
the incentive of an extra half credit this year making band 
and chorale a whole credit per semester, that more people 
with any musical talent will join. 

New clubs are easy to start in case your interest isn't met 
by an existing club. All that is needed is an interested group. 
This year, new clubs include the Indoor Drill Team and the 
Karate Club. 

Although many clubs have good turnouts, some func- 
tions of the college, such as dances and speakers, don't do as 
well. The intramurals enjoy excellent participation; for 
volleyball there are only 34 teams signed up! Some clubs, 
such as Block and Bridle, have larger memberships than 
others, but all clubs are continuing to grow. Publications such 
as the Gleaner, Cornucopia and Ram Pages are faring better 
than in previous years, but can always use more help. This 
year Student Government is well represented and special 
weekend activities are always well attended. 

Although DVC isn't a large school, there is plenty to do 
here besides study.

Have you heard something new in the cafeteria besides 
the crash of dishes and the complaints about the food? 

If you have, you're not alone! We have a great new radio 
station on campus that has been playing in Segal, the 
cafeteria and some of the dorms on campus. It's called 
WDVC and WDVC is at 640 AM on your dial. 

WDVC took over the reigns of WAPO this month, and it is 
a big improvement over the old station. There will be new 
music, events announced and interesting conversation about 
our school every day. 

So listen to your radio carefully! WDVC is here and only 
here at DVC! 

Next Week: WDVC in depth! 

Lee Page '82, Warren Robertson '81 and Rod Bates '82 
have been appointed RAs of Samuel Hall. Warren and Rod 
have returned for a second year as an RA and Lee is learning 
what being an RA is all about during his first year on the job. 

Lee is from Lafayette, N.)., where his 
family has maintained a 10-acre Morgan 
horse farm. He is a Biology major study- 
ing to be a veterinarian. He hopes to con- 
tinue his education with four more years 
of vet school at Ohio State or the Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania. 

Lee was introduced to DVC via a high 
school college night. He was looking for 
Ut fl., Samuel Hall a small college where he could pursue his 
interest in animals. He has joined the A.I.B.S. and Equine 
Club this year. Lee is also an active participant in volley- 
ball and football intramurals. He has been named to the 
Dean's list two of his four semesters at the College. Lee 
described his RA position as challenging and worthwhile and 
he views his experiences at college as just another stepping 

Lee spends a lot of his leisure time producing art work — 
especially portraits of horses. He is presently employed at the 
College dining hall by M.W. Wood Food Service, and during 
the summer months he builds and repairs swimming pools. 

Rod is a Business Administration 
major from Enola, Pa. (alone, spelled 
backwards!) which is on the map near 
Harrisburg. His career goal is to be in 
construction management; during the 
summer months he is employed as an 
industrial construction laborer. 

Rod is a member of the Varsity Club 
'and he has been a member of the intra- 
2nd fl., Samuel Hall mural bowling league. More important to 
Rod, however, is his commitment to the football and baseball 
teams for the last three years. Freshman year he earned the 
highest batting average of the year - .322. Three weeks ago, 
he was named the Outstanding Football Plaver of the Week 
against Moravian College. Rod also appreciates and enjoys the 
individual sports of hunting and fishing. 

Warren's hometown is Littlestown, 
Pa., near Gettysburg. He is majoring in 
Business Administration and expects to 
be self-employed oy renovating depre- 
ciated structures. Warren is currently 
self-employed as * sales distributor with 
Cut Co Cut'ery. P-ring the summer, he 
# can be found a'ter hours as a bouncer 
2nd fl., Samuel Hall at the "Retreat' Disco in Gettysburg. 
Warren keeps busy at DVC as a full-time athlete. He has 
been on the varsity team for 'ootball. wrestling and track 
throughout his college career. Warren h a very accomplished 
athlete and he has been in national competition for wrestling 
and track championships. He is also president of the Varsity 
Club and manager of the pool hall in Segal Hall. 

In some of Warren's free time he rebuilds cars and does 
some car racing. He enjoys fishing and above all, with a grin 
on his face, he told me he is a girl watcher; good luck ladies! 

Mrs. Navarre 


"My advice to students is always the same. Stir up change, 
probe for what is the honest factor of anything, help what is 
new to be born. You must fight the status quo when it is 
lazy, complacent and indulgent (as it often is). Be a student! 
Do not accept anything (government, family, school, sex, 
love, education, marriage) at face value. Ask about it all. 
DIG! Cut through the web of hypocrisy by always asking one 
more question. If students do not do this, who will? If 
students do not do this they are not only failing themselves, 
but all of us. . ."

If you happen to walk by Mandell 114 on any Monday or 
Wednesday at 4:15 p.m., you may have heard the voices of 
the DVC Chorale. It is made up of 24 students and is directed 
by Mrs. Joanne Roberts. The Chorale is simply a group of 
students who get together to share their enjoyment of music, 
and get one credit as well! They are all very interested in 
music and seem to enjoy the practices without too many 
complaints. And in the end, the concerts are well worth their 
time and effort. 

The Chorale is practicing now for the upcoming DVC 
Christmas banquet, where they will be singing classical 
music, popular carols and sing-alongs. The tentative date for 
the concert is December 9th, so come out for an evening of 
music and relaxation. They will also be performing at a 
nursing home and the Mercer Museum, both in the upcoming 

Aside from the Chorale, Mrs. Roberts would also like to 
stress the involvement of more students in music in various 
ways. As she stated, "There are a lot of talented students 
here; we should have a program set up enabling them to play 
in the dining hall, and coffee shop." This is the best way to 
let them keep up with their music. There are also two pianos 
on campus, one in the dining hall, the other in the chapel. 
These pianos are available to the students for use at all times. 
Mrs. Roberts hus also set up trips to see the Philadelphia 
Orchestra. The next trip is scheduled for January 22nd. All 
students are welcomed and the bus is free. So if you would 
like to get more involved at DVC and vou have an interest in 
singing, join the Chorale and sing with these talented 
students. We want to hear your great voice and musical 
ability at DVC.

State Pen defeats High Flyers for the Title 

by Warren Lewis 

And there's the kickoff! The game is under way here at 
James Work Memorial Stadium. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it 
looks as if some excellent football will be played by both 
teams today! 

The first score came late in the second quarter with the 
State Pen quarterback running the bail into the end zone. 
The point after was good. (7-0) A few plays later State Pen 
was being held back at its end of the field. A surge from the 
High Flyers line caught State Pen in the end zone for a 
two-point safety. (7-2) At halftlme both teams ran back to 
their team mates on the sidelines to formulate some new 
plans to strengthen their defenses. 

In the third quarter, the tone of the game became more 
serious. Rushes were stronger, and catches became difficult 
to handle as the intensity of the game grew. The High Flyers 
had mounted a drive all the way down to State Pen's end 
zone only to have the ball intercepted by State Pen for a 
touchback. State Pen , with the ball, returned to attack. It 
was a pass play; when the ball came down, Matt Granjewski 
of the High Flyers came up with the interception. 

In the fourth quarter with time running down, the score 
still 7-2, State Pen lead and had the ball. They mounted 
another consistent drive down to High Flyers territory. On 
the next play, the State Pen quarterback ran the ball in for 
the touchdown. The point after was good. Time expired 
shortly after that. 

The final score: State Pen 14, High Flyers 2. 

State Pen's record indicates an outstanding season. They 
scored 222 points, gave up 24 points, won 9 games and lost 

Their post season play was also consistent, with State 
Pen scoring 34 points, giving up only 2 points with a post- 
season record of 2 wins, losses. Of all the games played, six 
were shutouts. Congratulations on an undefeated season.

Aggies Clinch Tie for MAC North Championship: 1st Time Ever 

by Mel Balliet 

With a 17-3 win over Juniata College last Saturday, the 
Aggies have assured themselves of at least a tie for the 
Middle Atlantic Conference Northern Division Champion- 

The Aggies jumped on top, 3-0, when Gary Myers 
kicked a 32-yard field goal with 7:36 remaining in the 
first. The Indians' Jack Hench kicked a 24-yard field goal, 
with just over two minutes to play in the third, knotting 
the score at three. Hench 's field goal marked the first time 
the Aggies defense had allowed a score in almost 20 
quarters of play. 

With 9:32 rernaining in the game, the Aggies scored 
what proved to be the winning touchdown, when quarter- 
back Tom Kenny handed off to running back Tom Kirk, 
who rolled right and hit wide receiver Jim Yazujian with a 
42-yard touchdown pass. The Aggies' Cosmo Losco closed 
the scoring with a one-yard touchdown run that capped 
the 1 7-3 victory and gave the Aggies a 6-0 record in the 

MAC Northern Division (6-3 overall). 

Sophomore running back Eric Reynolds lead the 
Aggies ground game as he rushed for 78 yards and broke 
the DVC single season rushing record. Eric has now rushed 
for 748 yards, breaking the old record of 709 set by 
John Nice in 1967. 

Along with Reynolds' 78-yard performance, Tom 
Houpt pushed for 73 yards and Cosmo Losco added 39 to 
pace the Aggies running attack. 

The Aggies will travel to Albright College tomorrow to 
take on the Lions.. A win would give the Aggies the MAC 
Northern Division Championship; but the Lions possess a 
4 and 3 overall record, 3-2 in the MAC Northern Division, 
and have won three straight, including last week's 56-0 
romp over FDU. 

NOTE: There will be a student bus going to the game 
tomorrow. See Mr. Marron for details!

8-4, those numbers have quite a few people at DVC 
excited and looking forward to next year. These two numbers 
represent the final record of the Women's Field Hockey 1980 
campaign. This is the best record the Bananas have ever had 
in their seven year existence and is causing much anticipation 
of the '81 season. 

The Golden Bananas started off the season with a tough 
loss to Muhlenberg. Little did they know that they would 
have a chance to avenge this loss in a playoff game that would 
decide the MAC Northern Division. Avenge they did, as they 
shut out the Mules 3-0. 

This set the scene for a semi-final game with F&M, Wed- 
nesday, October 29th on our field. The Bananas played 
tough, getting off 23 shots on goal. Unfortunately, only one 
got by the F&M goalie. That score came late in the second 
half when Mary Ann Horst slid the ball into the nets. F&M 
scored three times in the game, and fought for every goal as 
goalie Janice McNeil turned back twelve other attempts. 

Although the ladies dropped the game 3-1, they deserve 
much credit for a good game and an excellent season. 

Congratulations to all, and best of luck next year.

MAC Championships at Chester (Widener) 


DVC's Soccer team traveled to Drew University Saturday, 
November 1st, for a league game and came home with 
another disappointing setback at the hands of the Rangers, 

The score was only 1-0 at half time, but Drew came back 
strong the second half to tally 4 more goals. This has been the 
case all season for the Aggies, playing a real strong first half 
with a big letdown in the second. Coach Soder feels we have 
a real fine team but we just can't find the net. 

The Aggies finish up their season Saturday, November 8th, 
at 2:00 p.m. against Wilkes on our home field. This should be 
a good game because the Aggies always play their best 
against Wilkes.

Some say that th( difference between winnihg and losing 
is simply the ability to make fewer mistakes than your 

Perhaps one of the most competitive conferences in 
Division til football in the entire United States, the MAC 
championship is one that is highly contested each year and 
is difficult to win. 

Certainly Bill Craver knows that. He was the last winning 
coach in Del Val's football history, having two brilliant 
6-2 seasons in the late 60's. Certainly Tom Shriner knows 
that. Shriner was the Head Coach during the early 70's and 
managed to win only a few games during his term as head 
football coach. Certainly Al Wilson knows how difficult it is 
to win in the MAC's. He took over as Head Co^ch in 1976 
and struggled through several long seasons. 

One of the games that I remember that may have helped 
turn the program around was against Moravian in the Fall of 
1977. The game was played in Bethlehem and this year's 
seniors were only freshmen. During that game, played on a 
damp, rainy afternoon, the Aggies pulled out a victory in the 
final moments of the fourth quarter. It was exciting to watch 
that game, and the young team that had not known victory 
very often celebrated that win as if it were the Super Bowl 
Championship. Finally, they started to force the other team 
to make the mistakes. They showed the growth and the fun- 
damentals that Al Wilson and his coaching staff had been 
stressing during the long hours of practice. Teamwprk was 
becoming obvious. 

They didn't win many games in 1977, but they would 
open the 1978 season at home in the brand new James Work 
Memorial Stadium, a facility that was considered by many as 
the best in the MAC's. 

The football team was not the best that year, but some- 
thing was happening to this team. They began to play a sound 
fundamental brand of football and they were always in each 
game they played. Again they didn't win many, but with a 
break or two and that old standard, fewer mistakes, they may 
have won more than they lost. 

Winning more than they lost would have to wait until the 
1979 season, a season that would become the turn-around 
season for Al Wilson's football team. They opened against 
Washington and Lee and they won 30-0. It was only the 
beginning for this team, as they would eventually finish the 
season at 5-4, the first winning season since the days of Bill 
Craver. That season became a preview of things to come. 
■ In 1980, they opened again with Washington and Lee, a 
non-conference team, only to lose a heartbreaker 12-8. They 
lost to Widener next, 23-0; defeated Wilkes 30-8 and went up 
to Moravian and lost a game that they knew they should 
have won 13-0. 

Looking at their season following the Moravian game with 
a record of 1-3, the seniors held a meeting and discussed their 
role as the leaders of this 1980 football team. What they dis- 
cussed is anyone's guess, but one thing that must have been 
concluded is that winning is more fun than losing. It must 
have been discussed because the Aggies of 1980 would not 
experience defeat again this season. They would go on to win 
six in a row, all against the teams that count, teams in the 
Middle Atlantic Conference, Northern Division. 

Another outstanding game during this memorable season 
was the game played against Susquehanna University. Condi- 
tions were so bad following a morning rainstorm that the 
field was almost unplayable. During the game, the rain con- 
tinued, along with high cold winds, causing the several 
hundred fans watching the game to wonder why they were 

Conditions such as rain and mud are said to be the great 
equalizer in football. Everyone was concerned that this game 
could end in a scoreless tie. 

It was not to be, as Al Wilson remained on the ground, 
staying with the running game, grinding out the yardage and, 
yes, making fewer mistakes than Susquehanna. Finally, in the 
fourth quarter, Eric Reynolds found daylight and the end 
zone. The Aggies would score again minutes later and their 
winning season would be held intact. Walking away from the 
stadium I believed that I had watched an important game, a 
crucial victory, a mature team that knew how to win despite 
the very poor playing conditions. I know now that what I 
saw that day was a team destined to win in the MAC's. 

Al Wilson has established a winning tradition here at 
Delaware Valley College, 7-3 overall and undefeated in 
conference play. I believe that everyone associated with the 
College appreciates a winning tradition and shares in the 
congratulations. Winning in the MAC's is after all, not an easy 
task. Congratulations to the 1980 Aggies!

Getting back on the track 

by M. D. McManiman 

The resignation of Ornamental Horticulture Department 
Chairman Frank Grau the other week surprised and shocked 
many people, as well as turned the department topsy-turvy. 
Mr. Grau had recently been appointed chairman of the 
department over the summer. His abilities, talents and enthu- 
siasm will be sorely missed, but we must carry on. 

Dr. Mertz clarified the present situation as follows: David 
Zabarowski, a '72 DVC graduate, wilt take over the Advanced 
Floral Design Laboratories. Mr. Zabarowski is a freelance 
floral designer from Doylestown who comes to the college 
with very high recommendations. As for the lecture section 
of the A.F.D., Dr. Martin will teach the remaining lectures, 
having taught design for six years at Virginia Poly-Tech. 

Mr. Cowhig and Dr. Martin will combine their talents to 
teach Floral Business Management (nee Floral Marketing). To 
free Dr. Martin for this course, Carolyn Harris will assist with 
the Ornamental Techniques I and Plant Propagation labs. Ms. 
Harris, working in the greenhouses, earned a B.S. degree from 
West Virginia in Plant Science and is employed by the college 
to assist in the management of the greenhouses. 

The department chairman position will be in the hands of 
former chairman and present Assistant Dean, Dr. Mertz. Dr. 
Mertz is still unsure who will teach what courses next 
semester. It is hoped that a permanent replacement, who 
meets the requirements, will be employed by next semester. 
The main goal, as Dr. Mertz sees it, is first to maintain the 
academic quality that has been established in the past, as well 
as continuing the various student services offered by the 
Ornamental Horticulture Department. 

The resignation of Mr. Grau has put a lot of pressure on 
the department. The cooperation of everyone involved would 
be greatly appreciated in this time of transition. This is not 
the first time the department has undergone such upheaval. 
We hope it will be the last. Together we can get everything 
back on track. The key is patience and cooperation. 

NOTE: The Philadelphia Flower Show exhibit will go on as 
planned as the entire department is, and has been, involved 
this year. Together Dr. Mertz, Mr. Cowhig, Dr. Martin and 
Dr. Seik with the students hope to put on the best presenta- 
tion in recent years!

"Yes, you too can learn to walk . . .," says Rick Nieman, 
president of the American School of Walking.

The Delaware Valley College third annual Variety Show 
was a great success. Best act this year went to Ted Stain- 
brook's "Kermit the Frog" performance. Rick Neiman had 
the best commercial with his "American School of Walking". 
The show opened with a group called "Three-N-One" who 
reproduced sounds of some of the top female vocalists of 
Rock. Rob Eriemeier's "Micro Midget" was a good exercise 
in coordination and was popular with the audience. "The 
Supremes" visited the show and performed an encore. The 
musical talent of the members of "Country Friends" was 
obvious to the audience. The girls of the Farm House got 
together for a song and dance routine. "The AC/DC Air 
Band" invaded the variety show and was called back for an 

The Variety Show went well and drew a large audience. 
The major problem was the length of the program, but the 
hosts deserve credit for holding things together and entertain- 
ing the audience between acts.

The Dairy as seen from Burpee Road 

by Jerry Rabbins 
FARM #6 

Nearly everyone knows where Farm #6 is. Farm #6, 
located on Burpee Road and the Old 202 Road, is better 
known as the Dairy. 

The Dairy is the result of the generosity of two of the 
school's benefactors, Abraham Erlanger and Nathan Straus. 
Abraham Erlanger, known as "Uncle Abe" was a trustee of 
the school and donated several farms as well as monies for 
Ulman Hall. It was through his efforts that the school became 
nationally known, through conventions. 

Farm #6 originally consisted of 203 acres. Due to 
numerous sales of land for the construction of the Lenape 
Junior High School, the Central Bucks Professional Building, 
the bypass, and the Doylestown Hospital, the acreage has 
been greatly reduced. Presently Farm #6 consists of about 
50 acres.

Perhaps one of the most competitive conferences in 
Division III football in the entire United States, the MAC 
championship is one that is highly contested each year and 
is difficult to win. 

Certainly Bill Craver knows that. He was the last winning 
coach in Del Val's football history, having two brilliant 
6-2 seasons in the late 60's. Certainly Tom Shriner knows 
that. Shriner was the Head Coach during the early 70's and

Getting back on the track 

by M. D. McManiman 

The resignation of Ornamental Horticulture Department 
Chairman Frank Grau the other week surprised and shocked 
many people, as well as turned the department topsy-turvy. 
Mr. Grau had recently been appointed chairman of the 
department over the summer. His abilities, talents and enthu- 
siasm will be sorely missed, but we must carry on. 

Dr. Mertz clarified the present situation as follows: David 
Zabarowski, a '72 DVC graduate, will uke over the Advanced 
Floral Design Laboratories. Mr. Zabarowski is a freelance 
floral designer from Doylestown who comes to the college 
with very high recommendations. As for the lecture section 
of the A.F.D., Dr. Martin will teach the remaining lectures, 
having taught design for six years at Virginia Poly-Tech. 

Mr. Cowhig and Dr. Martin will combine their ulents to 
teach Floral Business Management (nee Floral Marketing). To 
free Dr. Martin for this course. r««a»— **— -

In the first year of varsity competition, and with only the Lebanon Valley Invitation as 
experience, the lady harriers went into the Middle Atlantic Conference championships 
Saturday, November 8th. Having no idea of what the competition was like, the ladies went 
into the meet with the hopes of running well. Run well they did, as they brought Delaware 
Valley College its first ever Middle Atlantic Conference championship in any sport!!! Our 
lady harriers tied for the MAC crown with Juniata, also in their first year of competition, 
out of a field of twelve. 

The three-mile course consisted of three one-mile loops and included nine hills. The race 
got off to an extremely quick start, with the first mile in the five-mirvute range. After that, 
due to the hills, the pace slowed down as the ladies began to solidify the positions. Sue 
Fetherolf from Gettysburg won the race with a time of 18:48. Four more women crossed 
the finish line before our co-captain, Jeanne Cranney, finished with a time of 19:51; and 
right behind her, in the seventh position, was Gail Keleher with a time of 20:09. Sue Wagner 
made the top tv/enty, finishing fifteenth in 20:55. The next lady for DVC was Kathiann 
Held in the twenty-fifth position with a time of 21 :30; and Jean Toutkoushian rounded out 
the scoring in the thirty-third spot in 22:0.2. Lauren Clawson had a good race and finished 
thirty-eighth with a time of 22:20. Brenda Givler made a strong comeback, passing four 
other harriers within the last quarter-mile of the race, finishing fortieth in 22:35. 

These ladies, as well as those who didn't run (Kathy Sheffer, Joanne Lubanski, Sue 
Kulp, Mary Richards and Liz Trimble) deserve more credit than can be put down on paper. 
They went through an entire season without any team competition and brought DVC its 
first ever sports championship in the MAC's. Congratulations to the ladies, Doc Berthold 
and the men's team, which helped them through the rough times; and also to those who 
came to cheer them on at Chester Park. Coach Wilson and Mrs. Ermingotti also deserve 
credit for all the work they did to make this team possible.

To all of last week's excitement over the MAC championships won by the Cross Country 
and Football teams on Saturday, DVC can add another exciting victory. In its last game of 
the season the DVC Soccer team defeated visiting Wilkes College. 

The Aggies were playing well, although neither side scored. Then near the end of the first 
half, a goal by Aggie Terry Muth, assisted by Neuri Tobatabi, seemed to make something 
click. Maybe it was that "now or never" feeling that comes with the last game; or maybe the 
large crowd of fans that came out; or maybe it was the DVC band playing on the sidelines. 
Whatever it was, it sure did the trick. The team played great and the enthusiasm and support 
of the rest of the team members on the bench was outstanding. 

The second half brought more excitement with a second DVC score made by Scott Ruth. 
Like many soccer games, the second half was marked with a leg injury, although this time it 
wasn't a player. After blowing his whistle, one of the referres fell to the ground with a sore 
ankle inflicted by an "anonymous" player. Mr. Terry Allworthy, the DVC Band Director, 
came to the rescue. Only luck could have made Mr. Allworthy, with his English love for 
soccer, bring his band to the soccer game, "a first-time occurrence at DVC." And only luck 
would have it that he is a certified soccer official. After a short delay, the game continued 
with Mr. Allworthy's help. Coach Soder gave almost everyone a chance to play - and why 
not? It was the last game of the season. The entire team played like first-string and, although 
there were a few close DVC shots, the game ended with a 2-0 score. 

Congratulations to the team seniors: Dan Persons and Bob Stille. We will all miss them 
next season. 

And congratulations to the rest of the team — you played a fantastic game and deserve 
much credit!

, A 34-10 victory over Albright College last Saturday gave the 

■ Aggies a 7-0 league record and the first ever championship in the 
Middle Atlantic Conference Northern Division. 

The Aggies received the opening kickoff and rushed ten 
straight times, including Eric Reynolds' 34-yard touchdown 
scamper just 4:41 into the game. Gary Myers made it 7-0 as he 
kicked the first of three PAT's on the day. 

Albright, following a pass interception by Pat Grant, moved 
61 yards and capped the drive as Mike Franczak kicked a field 
goal with 5:23 remaining in the first half, to pull the Lions 
Eric Reynglds within four. Following a John McFadden punt, which went out 

of bounds at about the six-inch mark, the Aggies defense rose to the occasion. They held the 
Lions deep in their own territory, bringing up a fourth and nine and a punting situation. 
Lion Gregg Hoist dropped back to punt, but Aggie Jim Duncan blocked the punt, batting 
the ball out of the end zone for a safety, with just 45 seconds remaining to give the Aggies 
a 9-3 haiftime lead. 

Just three plays into the second half, Aggie Mark Bream recovered a Lion fumble on the 
Albright 37-yard line. The Aggies, keeping the ball on the ground, moved to the 20-yard line 
before Gary Myers made the score Del Val 12, Albright 3, with a 37-yard field goal. 
On the next series the Lions could not move the ball, so Rod Bates dropped back to 
receive the punt Bates took the ball on the 42-yard line, circled back to midfield, and with 
some great brokenfleld running followed blockers into the end zone. On the point after 
attempt, senior Jim Yazujian took the snap from center but instead of placing the ball for 
the kick, he raced into the end zone for the two-point conversion, making the score 20-3. 
Although down by 17, the Lions put together a drive which Joe Divine cashed in with a 
12-yard touchdown run cutting the Aggies lead to 20-10 at the end of three-quarters of 

With 13:45 remaining in the game the Aggies started a drive of their own. Senior quarter- 
back Tom Kenny handed off 14 straight times in the seven-minute drive, the last of which 
was to Eric Reynolds who took it three yards for the score. This was Eric's second touch- 
down of the afternoon but was far from his biggest accomplishment. Every yard he rushed 
for was just adding to his single season rushing record. Eric did more than add to his record 
as he rushed for 254 yards; he became the first Aggie ever to rush for more than 1 000 yards 
(1002) in a single season. 

The countdown to a championship was underway but with just 15 ticks on the clock, 
backup quarterback Tom O'Neil found Dan Rupp in the left corner of the end zone with a 
15-yard touchdown strike, icing the 34-10 Aggie victory. As the clock hit zero, a jubilant 
Aggie team raced onto the field to celebrate the victory and the long awaited MAC Northern 
Division Championship. 

NOTE: Widener University won the South title with an unblemished record. Wouldn't it be 
great to see our Aggies and the Pioneers settle the question of who is Number One in the 
MAC'S on the field? Unfortunately, this won't happen and we can only speculate.

"The harriers of DVC didn't have long to celfebrate their counterparts' victory Saturday as 
they had to run their race one-half hour after the ladies' race. The guys were uplifted by the 
win of the ladies and looked forward to a good race. But today would not bring the harriers 
a championship! Out of the field of 19 our guys finished tenth among some very stiff 

It was the day of the Golden Bears from Ursinus as they took top billing with Pat Walker 
winning the five-miler in 25:15. At the three and a half mile point, it looked as if Jim 
Parsons would be the first man to finish. Unfortunately, jim made a slight error on the 
poorly marked course and he ended up with a respectable 25:35, good enough for fifth 
place. Freshman Ed Kuri was Del Val's second harrier in at 27:18 in 48th place. Rich 
"Stones" Weidman was next, 60th at 27:41; and right behind him was Rich "Bumford" 
Weaver, 62nd in 27:43. Co-captain Chip Cowher rounded out the scoring in the 76th 
position in 28:19. Carl Pellington (84th, 28:34) and Jim Trainer (98th, 29:37) also ran for 
the team this day. 

When it was all over and the scores were tallied, our harriers ended up tenth overall. Next 
year should be even more exciting, for the team brings back all but one harrier, Chip 
Cowher. With a little luck our harriers should improve this year's 9-3 record as they will have 
more depth than has been present in recent years! Good luck in Regionals tomorrow!!!

Dear Editor: An Opposing Comment 

So a certain upperclassman, who appears to have friends 
in accord, feels that most freshmen are snobs. It is just this 
attitude, calling us "little" freshmen, which brings about bad 
feelings between classes. 

We're sure most uppcrclassmen went through the normal 
transition period between high school and college, where 
partying helps relieve the tension. Now things are settling 
down and the partying has greatly decreased. 

We in Elson Hall I'rke and respect the upperclassmen and 
we do not appreciate being known as part of the so-called 
snobs. We would enjoy any help from the upperclassmen and 
we would offer help to them if ever possible. 

Elson Hall Residents 
P.S. Elson invites any upperclassmen to stop by for a friendly 

Editors' Note: We also received a letter from another fresh- 
man, requesting to be known as "Tired of Smiling", that 
expressed similar views. K'e thank you fur your response! 

Dear Editors, 

A recent article describing the reorganization of the radio 
station on the DVC campus caused me to question many of 
the ideas expressed in the article. 

Of course, the recent collapse of the great red giant 
known as WAPO into the eternal black hole WDVC is 
common knowledge. As erroneously reported in the article, 
there was no takeover of power. New officers were elected, as 
is customarily done during the fall semester, and a vote was 
taken among the station members to change the call letters 
to WDVC. 

As a frequent visitor to the old WAPO Biome, I have a 
pretty good idea of what changes and improvements have 
taken place since the new administration came "into power". 
To begin with, the station was closed for two weeks during 
this semester by a certain administrative official to "reevalu- 
ate the station". What actually took place during that two- 
week period did not in my opinion and that of other station 
members necessitate the closing down of the station opera- 
tions. During that time new officers were elected and the old 
rug removed. Promises of professional audio technicians to 
evaluate and repair aging equipment never occurred. New 
furniture and/or albums also were never delivered. 

As far as the article printed in the Ram Pages last week, 
there have been no major changes in the musical format or 
programming of the station. The shows are still left up to the 
individual Dj's. This is how it should be, as the station is 
actually a non-profit club and not an FCC-licensed radio 

... I hope I haven't sounded too negative toward the 
station. Actually \'m extremely fond of the station and have 
spent many happy hours in the WAPO (WDVC) Biome. In 
my opinion, music is one of the greatest forms of expression 
and I hope that the station continues to be a viable force on 


Fred Dell Angelo (Fredster) 

Editors' Note: It was not intended that everything be com- 
pleted in the two-week period the station was closed. It was 
hoped that there was ample furniture in storage to replace 
the old couch. Unfortunately, this was not to be. Mr. Tasker's 
office is working on the situation and plans to have new 
furniture by next summer. As for the evaluation of the 
equipment, it is in the not-too-distant future.

On Wednesday, November 5th, members of Mr. Simone's 
Production Management class were able to see how some of 
the principles learned in class are put to use in the real world. 

The first stop was the GM assembly plant, located five 
miles west of Dover, Delaware. This plant assembles about 
70 cars an hour; needed materials are brought in from many 
places. Students were able to see various stages in the produc- 
tion of a Chevette, as well as some of the testing conducted 
on the finished cars. Some students were even able to parti- 
cipate in the testing procedure. The entire plant was very 
clean, and company morale appeared to be quite high. This is 
probably due to the extremely high wages (about $10/hour, 
plus liberal benefits) and to the generous incentive programs. 
There is also competition amons various departments, which 
encourages people to take pride in their work. 

For a contrast, we then traveled to a small motor produc- 
ing plant known as RMR, in Elkton, Md. The major problem 
at this plant was a lack of money to purchase the capital 
equipment that they would like to have. Also, RMR is unable 
to pay its employees a wage competitive with GM or other 
large companies. Following a tour of this plant, two of the 
managers spoke to the students, touching on the problems 
involved in being a manager, especially for a small company. 

By actually seeing what takes place on the assembly line, 
and by touring two very different operations, students were 
able to observe what goes on in a production plant. 


Dear Friends: 

As I am sure most of you know my association with the 
College c^me to an abrupt and totally unexpected halt when 
I resigned for what I feel were substantial reasons. 

There are many memories of students, parents, associates 
and activities that it has been my pleasure to be a part of 
during the two decades I spent at DVC that I will always 
cherish. And some I'll never forget. 

It has been fun being a part of the College; it also is an 
excellent time to decamp. There is a wonderful world filled 
with many more things than can ever be experienced in one 
lifetime ail around us. It seems a shame to let too much pass 

I sincerely appreciate the many telephone calls, visits and 
notes so many of you have generously deluged me with; do 
keep in touch. 

My best wishes for success and joy!

Last year the Del Val radio station (WAPO) was not very 
well received by the students or the faculty. They received 
many complaints on playing time, choice of music, and 
overall school habits, but this year WDVC plans to change all 

WDVC has high hopes for this year. They are the "new" 
DVC radio station, and they are planning to prove that to 
everyone. The people at WDVC are very excited and inter- 
ested in making the radio station of interest to all students at 
DVC. They are planning giveaways of money, tickets to 
movies, and all sorts of prizes. WDVC is also trying to get 
radio transmission to all the dorms at DVC. At night, WDVC 
will have two shows, with some nights being non-stop of that 
special artist of your choice. They also will soon begin music 
at all meals. . 

The DJ's at the radio station invite you to come up and 
see the radio on 2nd floor Segal. Requests will also be taken 
either when you are visiting the station, or by use of the 
school telephones, which are found everywhere on campus. 
You can call extension 235, and they will gladly meet your 

The people at the radio station really want to make the 
music enjoyable to everyone. They're working hard to get 
things started, and they really need your sypport. Look out 
for their events and try to get involved. You might really 
enjoy it.

This is the first of a series dealing with post- 
graduate life. 

At the end of four years in college, graduation rolls 
around and the seniors go out into the real world. What do 
these seniors do? Are they consumed by the cruel world, or 
do they make a place in the world by use of the knowledge 
they supposedly gained here at college? 

There are nine majors here at college and each major has 
its own characteristic job. However, it isn't written that fol- 
lowing graduation a student must obtain a job in the major 
for which he trained. The options upon graduation include: 
employment in their field or another field, part-time jobs, 
graduate schools or other further education, and the unfor- 
tunate ultimate - unemployment. 

Some graduates are fortunate and obtain work for which 
they were educated. In the class of '79, 67% did find work in 
their major; but in 1978, 77% were so employed. Others 
obtained work simply because they were educated. This 
education has enabled some to obtain jobs at institutions 
where they would not have been accepted as students. At 
graduate school, some students have a complete change of 
major and go from A.H. to Dentistry. Those who go to and 
complete graduate school get degrees such as Ph.D., Masters, 
and MBA's in education, vet, and others. Although the 
graduates obtain jobs unrelated to their majors, they still can 
form successful enterprises. 

Yes, there is life after graduation. But what specifically do 
the graduates do? What part does the Alumni Office play? 
Stay tuned to this paper to find out.

Ginkgo Biloba, more commonly referred to as 4*!$% by 
DVC students, is easily recognised by its fan-shaped leaves 
and the odor of the fruit in fall. The Ginkgo Is a "living 
fossil" and is t}clieved to have originated in northern China. 
For many centuries it had been grown in the Temple Gardens 
of China and japan, thus preventing its extinction. The tree is 
tolerant of urban conditions and is primarily seen in cities 
and airports - only the male variation, which does not bear 
the blessed fruit. 

Although the trees are beautiful - especially in the fall - 
they unfortunately possess little "bombs" that torment 
students who obcisantly walk in their pathway. Yet there was 
a year back in the early seventies when a local company 
sprayed the Ginkgo trees as an experiment to inhibit the 
blossom formation - thus preventing the abundant berries 
that arrive in the fall. The experiment was a success - and 
hopefully the spraying will be administered once again this 
coming spring. The college presently has the faculties to 
complete the job. But for now, the ground crew is raking up 
the leaves and the berries trying to keep them out of the 
walkway of the students. 

So, everyone -just hold your nose, clean your shoes, and 
start singing the Ginkgo blues! With a little constructive 
criticism and patience the problem will soon be resolved — 
allowing everyone to breathe deeply before the first big frost.

If you ever spend a day in New Hope, Pa., and need 
someplace to dine, I would like to recommend the Havana. 
The Havana offers some of the best gourmet dining, at 
moderate prices. They also have live music on selected 
nights, mostly ]iii and blues, while you enjoy your meal. 

The Havana has some of the best continental cuisine that 
I have ever had. There is a good se'ection to choose from on 
the menu. I enjoyed the Shrimp Scjmpi ($7.95), which was a 
special, and it was a most memorable meal. My date had the 
Baked Stuffed Flounder ($6.95), and she found it simply 
delicious. If you do have dinner here, you have to try the 
stuffed mushrooms; they were out of this world. They offer 
many salads to choose from; we found the Greek salad to be 
very good. Other specialties of the Havana include a vegetable 
casserole ($4.00), eggplant parmesan ($4.50), chicken tem- 
pura ($2.75), and a host of specials that will be sure to satisfy 
any gourmet's appetite. The only drawback that I found was 
that the dinner entrees don't include any extras; all side 
dishes must be purchased separately. The prices at the 
Havana range from moderate to expensive, but they are well 
worth it. 

To get to the Havana from Del Val College, take 202 
North to New Hope, Pa. From 202 take a right on River 
Road, and the Havana is not far from the Bucks County 
Playhouse. It will be on your right. 

Dinner is served at 5:00 p.m. No reservations are required, 
but they are busy on Friday and Saturday evenings.

November 4, 1980, Jimmy Carter wjs to become the first 
President to lose his bid for re-election since Herbert Hoover. 
As of January, 1981, Jimmy Carter also becomes a civilian. 
He will get a better taste of economics and inflation (that he 
was a partial cause of): Working with his peanuu, trying to 
cope with competition and rising prices. 

Reflecting on the last four years, and especially the last 
few months, we can see why Carter lost and Reagan won by 
such a wide margin. Inflation, increased government spend- 
ing, the Iranian crisis, soaring interest rates, Cuban refugees, 
and the Presidential debates are just a few of the reasons. 
Some people say that if the hostages were freed before the 
election, Carter would have been re-elected. Some say that if 
he had fared better in the Presidential debate, he would have 
improved his standings significantly. 

One place President-elect Reagan picked up votes was 
from thousands of voters who couldn't decide whom they 
wanted for President. The main place these people probably 
made up their minds was in front ot their television watching 

the Presidential debate. Reagan remained solid for the most 
part on the material he rehearsed, while on the other hand. 
Carter had many holes, and avoided questions either by 
switching topics, answering questions indirectly and, on 
occasion, would attempt to answer questions as best he could. 

When Carter was asked about international terrorists, he 
included a peroration on the dangers of nuclear proliferation. 
Another memorable moment was when Carter said that he 
had asked daughter Amy, age 1 3, what she thought the most 
important issue was. Her answer was, "Nuclear weaponry and 
the control of nuclear arms." Later in the week when Reagan, 
in Fort Worth, Texas, declared that Carter acts "as if some- 
one else were in charge of the country for the last four 
years," several people in the audience chorused, "Amy! 

Facts are facts. Reagan will be in; Carter out - but what 
of the people of the U.S.? We shall just have to wait as time 
and events unravel the results of the new political platform. 
Hopefully, none of us will ever have to fight in a war over 
trouble in the Middle East caused by any blunders in Wash- 
ington, D.C.

PROBLEM {? or !) 

by M. D. McManimon 

Have you ever tried to enter or exit the south entrance of 
Delaware Valley College during the morning or evening rush 
hour? If you have experienced this, you likely have sat, and 
sat, and then when you saw a fifty-foot break, closed your 
eyes, gripped the steering wheel with all your might and 
pushed the peddle to the floor. If your engine is well tuned, 
you made it; probably though, you stalled out when you de- 
manded some extra horsepower. You are now in the same 
predicament as you were before; this time when you see the 
break you say a little prayer and find yourself 202 bound! 

This attempt to leave or enter becomes an even more 
daring stunt if it is raining, snowing, sleeting, or if you want 
to go south on 202, If you are not brave enough to use this 
exit, you can use the exit by the soccer field at the risk of 
getting caught by Security. If you happen to be more daring 
than most, you can again risk a ticket and use the north 
entrance which is similar to an intersection at a demolition 

Granted, the above is an exaggeration to stress the basic 
point that we have a traffic problem. Through the years the 
college has attempted to have this problem solved only to be 
turned down by New Britain Borough. The time has come for 
another attempt. 

Delaware Valley College now has 1140 cars registered - 
faculty, administration, staff, students. Guests and the 
general public use the south entrance everyday. Commuters 
number over 600, the evening college 320, and both continue 
to grow steadily. More programs are being opened up for the 
general public — art exhibits, lectures, concerts, sporting 
events, tours, fruit and vegetable sales, and other activities, 
which constantly bring people onto our campus. 

Fortunately, no one has yet been seriously injured at the 
college entrances. How long will our luck hold out? The 
administration has recognized this problem and has sent a 
formal letter of request for an investigation into the installa- 
tion of some type of warning device to the New Britain 
Borough Commissioners. A reply is being waited for and we 
will keep you up-to-date on this! 

For this venture to be successful, the cooperation Af 
everyone will be necessary. Involvement by all facets of the 
college will be needed.

Ann Buickus '82 is a first-year 
RA in Miller Hall. She gives credit 
to the Miller residents for making 
her job so enjoyable. Ann's home- 
town is Wilkes Barre, PA. She is a 
food industry major and her 
.career goal is in quality control 
I with a food manufacturer. 

DVC attracted Ann because of 
its personal and rural nature; the 
attitude around campus is more 
down-to-earth than so many larger campuses and the campus 
itself seems to have more character. She has taken an interest 
in various campus activities; a band member freshman year, 
Circle K during freshman and sophomore years, food industry 
club sophomore and junior years. She participates in softball 
and bowling intramurals. Ann was Homecoming Queen can- 
didate for food industry this year and she is also on the class 
of '82 senior trip committee. 

When I asked Ann about her high school activities, she 
responded with "Anything and everything!" A few of her 
awards range from Outstanding Senior Member of the March- 
ing Band, Who's Who Among American High School Students 
and Outstanding Citizenship. 

About college life: Ann talks about friendships that she 
never thought could be possible. She describes the friendships 
as a close knit family of friends.

1. In 1940 an outdoor magazine cost from 5 to 15 cents a 
copy. Today, magazines run from $1.25 to $2.75. 

2. If you put all the people on earth together and weighed 
them, and did the same with all the insects, the insects 
would weigh 1 2 times as much as the humans. 

3. Have you ever seen tiny black specks scattered on the 
snow during the dead of winter when you were out hunt- 
ing or taking a walk? A closer look will reveal that these 
specks are actually live, minute, primitive wingless insects 
known as "springtails" or "snow fleas". Active at near 
freezing temperatures, they hatch from spherical eggs and 
appear in large numbers on the snow. They feed on decay- 
ing vegetable matter on fungi and use appendages on their 
undersides to flip themselves into the air, thus giving rise 
to their name of springtail. - G.E. Dolnack

Jamaica: On the road to recovery? 

by Warren Lewis 

Prime Minister Michael N. Manley, the bouyant leader of 
the People's National Party, was defeated by a landslide last 
week by Edward P.G. Seaga, leader of the Jamaica Labor 
Party. Voters blamed Manley for the country's depleted 
economy, 30% interest rates, unemployment of 33%, and 
(most of all) shortages of sugar, cooking oil, soap, and rice, 
basic needs of the people. Imagine living in a country that 
produces sugar and not being able to get even a bowl of it. 

In the past two elections, Manley had won by landslides; 
this time he was under the landslide yielding 51 out of 60 
seats to the Labor Party in Parliament, a gain of 38 over the 
1976 election. The People's Party was reduced from 47 to a 
mere 9. With that, the island had taken a sharp turn in its 
political course away from Manley 's pro-Cuban "democratic 
socialism" toward Seaga 's pro-U.S. conservatism. While cam- 
paigning, Manley claimed Seaga was backed by the CIA and 

Seaga claimed Manley was going to turn the island into 
another Cuba. 

On election day, steel-helmeted army troops, backed up 
by armored cars and helicopters, guarded polling places and 
patrolled the streets. Nonetheless, the gunfire echoed through 
the tough slums of Kingston all day long. From pre-election 
days right up to the election, the casualty toll was astronomi- 
cal, with hundreds of people dead or wounded. This was the 
most divisive and bloody campaign experienced by the island 
since it became independent from Britain in 1962. 

People hoped that Seaga, being a former official of the 
World Bank and International Monetary Fund, would have 
the ability to attract foreign investment which the country 
needs so desperately. With Manley and his warm liking for 
Fidel Castro out of office, foreign investors may take a closer 
look into this beautiful island's possibilities once again.

We have all eaten it, many have thrown it, and some have 
even enjoyed it at times. What is it? The DVC food; What 
else? For many of us, this food is a new experience, as well as 
a shock. But before we so readily criticize the food, let us 
look at some basic facts concerning the M.W. Wood Company 
and the people who make it work. 

The M.W. Wood Company provides planned and balanced 
meals, not only to DVC, but also to 90 other institutions. Mr. 
Moyer, who is responsible for the menu planning, prepares a 
menu including approximately 6 entrees a day, 40 entrees a 
week. Each menu is reviewed by a trained dietician, making 
sure each meal is well balanced and nutritious. This is all done 
on a fixed budget. While half of the expense goes toward the 
purchase of food, the rest goes toward labor, light, heating, 
and merchandise. By merchandise, we are referring to the 
numerous items, broken and stolen, averaging approximately 
10,000 per year. If we could do away with this unnecessary 
bill, more money could be put toward the food, improving 
the quality. 

Many students complain about the large amount of fried 
food served on campus. This is a cheaper method for prepar- 
ing the food, but is not the only way used. Mr. Moyer and 
the entire M.W. Wood Company always provide an entree 
that is not fried so you are given a choice. Whether you 
choose the fried entree or not is up to you. 

Some of the food on campus is also provided by the 
college itself. Milk is supplied fresh daily from our own dairy 
as well as eggs from our chicken house. 

If you're still not satisfied with the food here, there is 
something you can do: complain to the Food Committee. 

The Food Committee is responsible for adapting the available 
food to what the students want. However, the only way they 
can do this is from input from the rest of the student body. 
The Committee must know what the students don't like 
before they can attempt to improve on it. The head of the 
Food Committee, Cliff Weinstein, along with six other stu- 
dents: John Draper, Warren Lewis, Les Hergenrother, Mike 
Hoke, Mary Richards, and Frank Schmied, meet every 
Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. in Goldman Lounge. These meetings 
are open to all, and complaints and suggestions are welcomed. 

Aside from the regular meals, many of you may recall the 
special, or buffet, dinners. The Committee, along with Mr. 
Moyer, have planned two for the semester: Thanksgiving, and 
Christmas. The reason we do not have more of these dinners 
is the cost. They are just too expensive. 

Although the M.W. Wood Company is not "just like home 
cooking", it can become a step closer with help from the 
students. Air your opinions and complaints, and give Mr. 
Moyer and the Food Committee a hand in improving what 
we have. The budget and the finished project go hand-in-hand, 
and it is hard to raise the quality of one without raising the 
price of the other. But it can be done with the help of every- 
one, starting with the return of all "borrowed" utensils, 
plates, and all other cafeteria belongings. We can improve 
what we have, if we are all willing and make an attempt. 

Editors ' Note: The surveys token by the Food Committee 
were of no value as only 30 or so were returned. Maybe we 
could try it again.

Some say that the difference between winning and losing 
is simply the ability to make fewer mistakes than your 

Perhaps one of the most competitive conferences in 
Division III football in the entire United States, the MAC 
championship is one that is highly contested each year and 
is difficult to win. 

Certainly Bill Craver knows that. He was the last winning 
coach In Del Val's football history, having two brilliant 
6-2 seasons in the late 60's. Certainly Tom Shriner knows 
that. Shriner was the Head Coach during the early 70's and 
managed to win only a few games during his term as head 
football coach. Certainly Al Wilson knows how difficult it is 
to win in the MAC's. He took over as Head Coach in 1976 
and stru^led through several long seasons. 

One of the games that I remember that may have helped 
turn the program around was against Moravian in the Fall of 
1977. The game was played in Bethlehem and this year's 
seniors were only freshmen. During that game, played on a 
damp, rainy afternoon, the Aggies pulled out a victory in the 
final moments of the fourth quarter. It was exciting to watch 
that game, and the young team that had not known victory 
very often celebrated that win as if it were the Super Bowl 
Championship. Finally, they started to force the other team 
to make the mistakes. They showed the growth and the fun- 
damentals that Al Wilson and his coaching staff had been 
stressing during the long hours of practice. Teamwork was 
becoming obvious. 

They didn't win many games in 1977, but they would 
open the 1978 season at home in the brand new )ames Work 
Memorial Stadium, a facility that was considered by many as 
the best in the MAC's. 

The football team was not the best that year, but some- 
thing was happening to this team. They began to play a sound 
fundamental brand of football and they were always in each 
game they played. Again they didn't win many, but with a 
break or two and that old standard, fewer mistakes, they may 
have won more than they lost. 

Winning more than they lost would have to wait until the 
1979 season, a season that would become the turn-around 
season for Al Wilson's football team. They opened against 
Washington and Lee and they won 30-0. It was only the 
beginning for this team, as they would eventually finish the 
season at 5-4, the first winning season since the days of Bill 
Craver. That season became a preview of things to come. 

In 1980, they opened again with Washington and Lee, a 
non-conference team, only to lose a heartbreaker 12-8. They 
lost to Widener next, 23-0; defeated Wilkes 30-8 and went up 
to Moravian and lost a game that they knew they should 
have won 13-0. 

Looking at their season following the Moravian game with 
a record of 1-3, the seniors held a meeting and discussed their 
role as the leaders of this 1980 football team. What they dis- 
cussed is anyone's guess, but one thing that must have been 
concluded is that winning is more fun than losing. It must 
have been discussed because the Aggies of 1980 would not 
experience defeat again this season. They would go on to win 
six in a row, all against the teams that count, teams in the 
Middle Atlantic Conference, Northern Division. 

Another outstanding game during this memorable season 
was the game played against Susquehanna University. Condi- 
tions were so bad following a morning rainstorm that the 
field was almost unplayable. During the game, the rain con- 
tinued, along with high cold winds, causing the several 
hundred fans watching the, game to wonder why they were 

Conditions such as rain and mud are said to be the great 
equalizer in football. Everyone was concerned that this game 
could end in a scoreless tie. 

It was not to be, as Al Wilson remained on the ground, 
staying with the running game, grinding out the yardage and, 
yes, making fewer mistakes than Susquehanna. Finally, in the 
fourth quarter, Eric Reynolds found daylight and the end 
zone. The Aggies would score again minutes later and their 
winning season would be held intact. Walking away from the 
stadium I believed that I had watched an important game, a 
crucial vctory, a mature team that knew how to win despite 
the very poor playing conditions. I know now that what I 
saw that day was a team destined to win in the MAC's. 

Al Wilson has established a winning tradition here at 
Delaware Valley College, 7-3 overall and undefeated in 
conference play. I believe that everyone associated with the 
College appreciates a winning tradition and shares in the 
congratulations. Winning in the MAC's is after all, not an easy 
task. Congratulations to the 1980 Aggies!

Getting back on the track 

by M. D. McManiman 

The resignation of Ornamental Horticulture Department 
Chairman Frank Grau the oth»!r week surprised and shocked 
many people, as well as turned the department topsyturvy. 
Mr. Grau had recently been appointed chairman of the 
department over the summer. His abilities, talents and enthu- 
siasm will be sorely missed, but we must carry on. 

Dr. Mertz clarified the present situation as follows: David 
Zabarowski, a '72 DVC graduate, will take over the Advanced 
Floral Design Laboratories. Mr. Zabarowski is a freelance 
floral designer from Doylestown who comes to the college 
with very high recommendations. As for the lecture section 
of the A.F.D., Dr. Martin will teach the remaining lectures, 
having taught design for six years at Virginia Poly-Tech. 

Mr. Cowhig and Dr. Martin will combine their talents to 
teach Floral Business Management (nee Floral Marketing). To 
free Dr. Martin for this course, Carolyn Harris will assist with 
the Ornamental Techniques I and Plant Propagation labs. Ms. 
Harris, working in the greenhouses, earned a B.S. degree from 
West Virginia in Plant Science and is employed by the college 
to assist in the management of the greenhouses. 

The department chairman position will be in the hands of 
former chairman and present Assistant Dean, Dr. Mertz. Dr. 
Mertz is still unsure who will teach what courses next 
semester. It is hoped that a permanent replacement, who 
meets the requirements, will be employed by next semester. 
The main goal, as Dr. Mertz sees it, is first to maintain the 
academic quality that has been established in the past, as well 
as continuing the various student services offered by the 
Ornamental Horticulture Department. 

The resignation of Mr. Grau has put a lot of pressure on 
the department. The cooperation of everyone involved would 
be greatly appreciated in this time of transition. This is not 
the first time the department has undergone such upheaval. 
We hope it will be the last. Together we can get everything 
back on track. The key is patience and cooperation. 
NOTE: The Philadelphia Flower Show exhibit will go on as 
planned as the entire department is, and has been, involved 
this year. Together Dr. Mertz, Mr. Cowhig, Dr. Martin and 
Dr. Seik with the students hope to put on the best presenta- 
tion in recent years! 


A Super, Sensational Smash 


"Yes, you too can learn to walk . . .," says Rick Nieman, 
president of the American School of Walking. 

by Robert F. Galdi 

The Delaware Valley College third annual Variety Show 
was a great success. Best act this year went to Ted Stain- 
brook's "Kermit the Frog" performance. Rick Neiman had 
the best commercial with his "American School of Walking". 
The show opened with a group called "Three-N-One" who 
reproduced sounds of some of the top female vocalists of 
Rock. Rob Eriemeier's "Micro Midget" was a good exercise 
in coordination and was popular with the audience. "The 
Supremes" visited the show and performed an encore. The 
musical talent of the members of "Country Friends" was 
obvious to the audience. The girls of the Farm House got 
together lor a song and dance routine. "The AC/DC Air 
Band" invaded the variety show and was called back for an 

The Variety Show went well and drew a large audience. 
The major problem was the length of the program, but the 
hosts deserve credit for holding things together and entertain- 
ing the audience between acts.

FARM #6 

Nearly everyone knows where Farm #6 is. Farm #6, 
located on Burpee Road and the Old 202 Road, is better 
known as the Dairy. 

The Dairy is the result of the generosity of two of the 
school's benefactors, Abraham Erianger and Nathan Straus. 
Abraham Erianger, known as "Uncle Abe" was a trustee of 
the school and donated several farms as well as monies for 
Ulman Hall. It was through his efforts that the school became 
nationally known, through conventions. 

Farm #6 originally consisted of 203 acres. Due to 
numerous sales of land for the construction of the Lenape 
junior High School, the Central Bucks Professional Building, 
the bypass, and the Doylestown Hospital, the acreage has 
been greatly reduced. Presently Farm #6 consists of about 
50 acres.

it's that time of year again: the time to give, a time to 
help the needy and those who really need your help. Those 
without it could possibly die. No, we're not talking about 
sending food to the starving peoples of the world, but those 
who need the gift of life - blood! 

Let us start this holiday season with the most precious 
gift one can offer - one unit of your blood. The process, 
contrary to popular belief, is quite painless and takes only 
about 45 minutes of your time. Just think, by participating 
in this event you may save someone's life. The holiday season 
is a time of joy and happiness. Unfortunately, it is also a time 
when many people are injured and the Red Cross Blood 
Banks reach an annual shortage. It could be the life of a loved 
one you save; besides by donations you guarantee the people 
of the college community, including yourself, blood at any 
time you may need it. 

Take a little time Wednesday, December 3rd, between 
10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and stop by the RNG to give the 
gift of life. Our goal is 200 units; help us top this!!! 


This is necessary so they know how many people 
to prepare for. You've got 8 to 9 pints of Mood in 
you and you don't noad all of them. Since you can 
donate every eight weeks, why not give a pint now? 
It could help someone else. 

Remember to sign up so that they can prepare. But 
if you forget, go anyway; there's always room. 


The Residence Life Office is participating in a national 
effort to remind college students that they are very suscept- 
ible to the dangers of fire. The project is being conducted by 
the Association of College and University Housing Officers 
(ACUHO) and the National Fire Protection Association 
(NFPA), a non-profit advocate for fire safety. 

"As with most fires, campus fires occur because people 
aren't aware of a hazard," said Mr. Zenko, Director of 
Residence Life. "College students are no different from 
anyone else in that regard, but there are some hazards that 
the on-campus resident may be especially susceptible to." 

The fire causes frequently encountered are: leaving 
cigarettes burning near upholstery or bedding; overloading 
electrical circuits with heating devices and appliances; using 
improperly gauged extension cords; using combustible decora- 
tions; and, unfortunately, many fires are maliciously or 
mischievously set. 

Over the course of the next few years, ACUHO and NFPA 
will produce materials that will both identify and communi- 
cate fire safety practices that are most appropriate for the 
campus setting. The Residence Life Office will work with 
individual students, as well as student government and 
Residence Life staff to alert them to the fire hazards most 
prevalent in their situations. 

NFPA and ACUHO have been at work on the project for 
some time. NFPA has led the nation in advocating fire safety 
for more than 80 years, and recently has produced a curri- 
culum for use in grade schools that identifies 25 key fire

When snow hits DVC, the reaction of students is easily 
predictable: snowballs batter windows, cars, and pedestrians; 
"snowpeople" spring up on every open swath of lawn; and 
for a short, welcome period you can forget your age and all 
of your worries. But there exists a tiny minority who crave 
these conditions for other reasons - for a rare chance to 
journey into the world of danger, risk, and thrills. 

Those of you reading know who you are. As the radio 
announcer' whines about blizzard conditions with travellers' 
advisories, and hot chocolate brewing suburbanites huddle 
around their fireplaces in fear, you pull on boots, jacket, and 
gloves. Out to the deserted parking lot you march, fully 
confident. The blanket of wet, new snow on the pavement 
sets your blood pounding with anticipation, but you control 
your emotions as you head for your safe, practical K-car . . . 
or is it perhaps ... a candy red Ferrari? You slide into the 
cockpit and the engine thunders to life. The clutch is eased 
out as the powerful vehicle sends a fix of automotive venom 
through your blood. The stage is set for the magical sensation 
of spine-tingling action. You jam the accelerator, jerk the 
wheel left, and send the car into a few warmup 360's. Con- 
vince yourself there is no snow now. Beneath you the tires 
are sliding over raw pavement, sending up smoke as they 
transform the terrifying power of the hand-crafted engine to 
movement. A security car is no match as your projectile 
slingshots off the campus and onto the back roads of 

The cautious, creeping traffic vanishes as you pilot your 
wild beast farther into the countryside. Now, the essence of 
what real driving is all about is realized. You weave down a 
dark road, sliding at 30° angles to the shoulder, shifting back 
and forth. Leaving stop signs, the unharnessed horsepower of 
the motor spins the Pirelli slicks as you fight for traction. 
You slam through the well-synchronized gears, revving the 
powerplant furiously and leaving a thick layer of rubber 
behind. Ah, satisfaction! For an hour or so this continues, 
man and machine testing each other's limits with mutual 
respect, then acting as one. Soon the snow turns to rain. As 
you head back to campus, the sleek Ferrari again becomes a 
K<ar, and the fantasy is over.

ARCHER (part 1) 

by Dwight Bohm 

Do you remember the last time you walked by Lake 
Archer? You know, that depression in the land that holds 
water between Dr. Feldstein's house and the Biology Build- 

I suppose you don't remember, and nobody can expect 
you to, but there once was a time that something was always 
going on at Lake Archer, and everyone knew about it. 

People began getting interested in the land behind the 
Bidlogy Building in the early 60's. That plot of land was 
originally a swamp and that whole area around it a pasture 
for horses. This is all it was used for until 1960. Then the 
freshmen and sophomore classes of '59 and '60 had a big 
tug-of-war over the swamp. The class that lost had its 
president carry the other class's president on his back through 
the swamp, which eventually led to quite a mud fight and a 
really good time. 

This was the first involvement of the student body with 
that bowl of mud, but it was by no means the last. In 1961, 
the Aggies got involved in possibly the biggest student- 
organized activity in the school's history - the formation of 
Lake Archer. They began with funds donated from the classes 
and the Agronomy Club. They started the work with aid 
from the Pennsylvania Soils Commission. They soon finished 
dredging and filled the hole with water. Things seemed fine 
until they realized there was a major problem - the lake 
leaked. It was drained, and a plasticide "Bentonite" was 
placed on the bottom of the lake. This chemical, when 
wetted, expands and prevents any more seepage of water into 
the soil. Archer was refilled and stands as it does today - 
one acre of surface area with its deepest point at seven feet. 

In 1961, the project was finished, with the classes of 
'61, '62, '63 and '64 all being involved. A monument was 
soon built and is still there today. The rock from that monu- 
ment is a step stone from the old Biology Building behind 
the football sUdium, and is over 200 years old. The plaque 
embedded in the stone tells of all who were involved in the 
Lake. Lake Archer is named after Archer Rosenthal, Class of 

The lake wasn't used much by students until 1971 when 
the original sc'jba club was formed, which used the lake for 
their practices. Believe it or not, a certain professor claims he 
came face-to-face with a VA' alligator with a "Florida 
souvenir" sticker on its back.

Sue Wagner, a sophomore Ornamental Horticulture major, 
recently won honorable mention in the 4th Annual Nation- 
wide contest held by Popular Mechanics magazine. Her entry 
was an abstract sculpture made of plywood. Sue's interest in 
abstract art started in high school, where she took many art 
design classes. It was her art class in her senior year that got 
her to do the design as an assignment 

After being picked as best sculptural design from her 
school. Sue decided to enter it in the mj^dzine contest, where 
after much delay and mix up, it was finally chosen as honor- 
able mention. Sue then had to bu<ld what was on paper. It 
took her four months to nnake the sculpture, and after the 
other seniors had graduated and left, Sue was still hard at 
work finishing her project Now, finally completed, the 
sculpture stands in the center courtyard at her high school. 

Although Sue is a floriculture major, she has been taking 
many landscaping design electlves. She wants to combine her 
interest in floriculture with her enjoyment of sculptural 
design. As Sue commented, "I would like someday to finish 
the courtyard by landscaping it and making it into a sculp- 
tural garden. But it takes a great deal of time, so it will have 
to wait." 

Aside from art, Sue is a member of the Cross Country 
team and is active in the OH Club.

For commuters or any other students on campus who 
want something quick to eat, Segal Hall Snack Bar is the 
place to go. The prices have been stable and have not risen by 
any substantial amount. Until recently. On Friday, November 
14th, there was a sudden upward price surge as high as 30c 
above normal. The students, in a cry of uproar, decided to 
boycott the items that "took the price hike." Students also 
showed their disapproval by placing signs advocating the 

On Monday, November 17th, the Food Committee and 
Mr. Tasker met for their monthly meeting with Mr. Hepps, 
District Manager of M.W. Wood's Food Service. The meeting 
was pre-arranged and not designed specifically to deal with 
the Snack Bar price raises. They discussed certain matters 
with the Food Committee and afterwards turned their 
attention to the problem of the increased prices and the 
boycott in Segal Hall. 

Profits from the Snack Bar, which have recently been 
small, are used to purchase new equipment, pay the staff, and 
pay the management fee. So, no one is "pocketing" any 
profits and in the future students will have to accept the 
effects of inflation. Be prepared for future price increases 
which will be permanent 

Any questions on this matter or food-related matters, see 
the Food Committee chairperson Cliff Weinstein.

Dear Editors: 

This letter is in response to the past letters concerning the 
freshmen as being snobs. We, as members of Ulman 3rd, feel 
we are very fortunate to have a super bunch of freshmen on 
our floor. This makes us wonder why other freshmen on this 
campus have to be alienated toward us upperclassmen. I don't 
recall any of us being this way when we were freshmen. As a 
matter of fact, I feel that part of making it throu^ freshman 
year, both academically and socially, was largely by help of 
the upperclassmen. 

They revealed to us any secrets and ideas on doing well in 
class. They made us aware of ceruin teachers and how to 
cope with them. They also lent us old tests and reports 
whenever possible. 

So freshmen, take heed. Upperclassmen really are not as 
bad as you think. Don't be reluctant to say "Hello" or even 
ask for help. I'm ceruin that almost any upperclassman will 
be more than happy to lend you a hand. 

Ulman 3rd members 

Dear Editors, 

Haev you reccivde your cupy of the Stusent Directry? 
I was sort of surprised to find, among other things, that my 
roommate lives across the hall and down a few rooms, while a 
girl who actually lives off campus is supposedly my room- 

Is there a reason for all the mistakes? The directories were 
compiled and distributed much earlier this year, and so, 
perhaps haste was the cause of these errors. I'm sure we can 
afford to wait a bit longer next year if this would insure a 
little more accuracy.

Each Thursday afternoon a small group of earnest student 
volunteers gathers in Room 101 in the Agriculture Building 
and plans a horticulture project designed to help some 
unfortunate people to cope with their problems. How, you 
may ask, can horticulture do that? The answer is not simple. 
But projects in horticulture can, with a little planning and 
effort, bring a great deal of satisfaction and a sense of 
accomplishment to those who carry them out. Therein lies 
the value of horticulture as therapy. 

This is the third year of a marvelously rewarding associa- 
tion between a group of volunteer Del Val students and the 
Sandy Ridge Center, a community mental health outpatient 
clinic just up Rl 202 in New Britain. The clients, or patients, 
at the clinic have all faced some chronic or acute emotional 
crisis in their lives, and the clinic's purpose is to help them to 
cope with the damage done by that crisis so they can lead 
reasonably normal lives as members of the community. Each 
week, groups at the Center's clients are met by teams of 
student volunteers who have planned and will present to 
them projects in horticulture, projects that will hopefully 
give the clients an uplifting sense of accomplishment and 

This year's group of student volunteers include Jean 
Cirotti, Dee Eberly, John Erwin, Janice Madlon, Carol Spahr, 
and Judy Stiner. Dr. Mertz helps the group coordinate its 
. activities. 

In addition to this very rewarding participatory program, 
the College now offers two elective support courses in this 
exciting, relatively new career field. One, Introduction to 
Horticultural Therapy, is Uught by Mona Dwork, who heads 
the excellent horticultural therapy program at Friends' 
Hospital in Philadelphia. The course focuses on how horticul- 
tural skills and projects can be applied for therapeutic value 
and features "hands-on" experiences with a variety of poten- 
tial projects. The other course. Psychology of Horticultural 
Therapy, is Uught by Dr. Philip Braun, Director of the Sandy 
Ridge Center. Dr. Braun is a practicing clinical psychologist 
who Is able to bring to his course a close association with 
both the value of horticulture in treating menul illness and 
the relationship between the therapist and the patient. This 
course, incidenully, may be used to satisfy a course require- 
ment in the psychology area. Both courses will be offered in 
the Spring and scheduled to meet in the evening. 

Do you think you might be interested in exploring the 
potential of horticultural therapy? See Dr. Mertz, Lasker Hall, 
first floor. Better yet, join the Sandy Ridge volunteers. Again, 
they meet on Thursday afternoons at 4:10 p.m., Room 101, 
in the Agriculture Building. 

The Ram Pages would like to congratulate Eric 
Reynolds and Chuck Alpuche for receiving the 
prestigious Maxwell Award. This is the first 
time any college has had two recipients winning 
the Maxwell Award in the same season. See 
feature article in next issue. 


Dear Editor: 

Thought yMir Ornamental Horticulture students would 
like to know just how much their floral arrangements are 
appreciated - and, also, where some finally end up. 

My daughter, who is an employee at DVC, receives an 
arrangement occasionally and brings it home. They are very 
beautiful and the two she has received have "gone to Mass" 
on Sunday mornings where many more people admire them. 
They are placed next to the Virgin Mary in appreciation of 
the day our daughter was hired by DVC! 

Thank you again.

The Bucks County Honey Show was held on Wednesday, 
November 12, in the Mandell Building. The judge for the 
show was Dr. Robert Berthold, advisor to the Apiary Society. 

Albert Effrig received two first place ribbons for his liquid 
honey and bee's wax. Arthur Leatherman of Pipersville 
received second for his liquid honey. Roger Wentling, a 
Delaware Valley College student, was awarded second for his 
bee's wax.

Over the past couple of months the college has been 
refurbishing the dorm lounges. Special attention has been 
paid to Cooke, Work, Samuel and Goldman. In order to meet 
the needs of the residents, the college has dipped into the 
storage rooms and the budgeted money. 

Samuel and Goldman received furniture for their sadly 
lacking lounges in the beginning of the semester. In less than 
three months, both lounges have been reduced to a few odd 
couches. If the furniture is not returned inuct, the money to 
replace it will come out of tuition. 

Work Hall lounge is also in the process of being restocked, 
but in order for it to remain so, action is taken by the R.A. to 
lock up each evening. In the long run, this defeats the pur- 
pose of having the lounge, but it is a necessary precaution. 

Recently Cooke's old furniture was removed to make 
room for the new experimenul furniture. This "institutional" 
furniture consists of two chairs, one couch, two end ubies, 
and one coffee ubie. This furniture is on trial now to see if it 
will last, if it is comfortable, and if the residents like it. If it 
meets these requirements, then the rest of the dorms will be 
renewed with this style over a period of two years, depending 
on the budget. 

The furniture cerUinly looks as if it will last, but that's 
where the good qualities seem to end. The residents complain 
of uncomfortableness, getting headaches from the smell, and 
the general style. Their favorite comment is that it reminds 
them of Barbie doll furniture. 

It is obvious to see that the residents prefer the old to the 
new when one sees evti^one crowded onto the one remaining 
old couch. Does this mean that we will not be receiving more 
of this style of furniture? Visit Cooke Hall lounge and make 
your own judgments. The fate of your lounges is up to you. 
Relay your better ideas to the administration.

As the Christmas season draws near, once again the 
United States Marine Corps Reserve kicks off its "Toys for 
Tots" campaign. This campaign began in 1947 by a Reservist, 
Maj. W. Hendricks, who was aided by Col. Shepard and Maj. 
Hampton. The program began as a local event in Los Angeles 
to aid orphaned children of WW II. With the help of private 
businesses and organizations, over 7,000 toys were donated. 

In 1948 the Marine Corps announced the adoption of a 
new public service activity - TOYS FOR TOTS - to be con- 
ducted annually through the organized Reserve. During the 
first few years new, used and repairable toys were accepted, 
repaired and distributed by members of the USMCR and 

In 1955 two major methods of distributing toys were 
established. The first was through a "toy bank" where 
children picked up their own toys, and second through 
organized welfare agencies - which is the method pre- 
dominantly used today. Through the help of national pub- 
licity and well known celebrities the United Sutes Marine 
Corps Reserve has been able to reach millions of donors. 

The Marine Corps Reserve TOYS FOR TOTS program has 
been in existence for 33 years, bringing an estimated 60 
million toys to the underprivileged children of America. 

As you may realize we rely heavily on our Marines, 
private citizens and local businesses and organizations, and 
we are therefore asking your aid in making this Christmas 
merry for those less fortunate children. This can only happen 
with your help. 

If you are interested in helping the Marines in this worthy 
cause, you can conuct: 

Sergeant William F. Clark 
Marine Aircraft Group - 49 
N AS Willow Grove, PA 19090 
Phone: (215)443-6743 

Also, you can drop off your toys at:

Thanks in advance for your generosity and cooperation. 

Dear Readers, 

Do you need advice but you don't know whom to turn 
to? Now you have Dear Aggie, DVC's answer to Dear Abby. 
I'll answer your questions about social relationships and 
academic problems. I'm here to help you. Just drop me a 
note In P.O. Box 1086, and your response will be in the 
Ram Pages as soon as possible. 

Dear Aggie 


Dear Aggie, 

Help!! There is a guy — isn't there always? - who likes 
me. I also like him but not in the same way. He visits me 
plenty and I wish he wouldn't. I don't want to hurt his 
feelings, but I do not want to tell him to get lost. But I don't 
want to lose his friendship. What do I do? 


Dear Stuck, 

The next time your friend drops by for a visit, casually 
explain to him that you enjoy his friendship and diat you 
would like to keep it like that. If he Is a true friend, he will 
understand your decision.

Dear Aggie, 

I have a problem; it's my roommate. It seems that every 
weekend my roommate has a different boyfriend in the sack. 
Is she loose or am t a prude? For once I'd like to take a trip 
to the water fountain and come back to find my room 
unlocked and my roommate alone. Please advise. 

Locked Out 
P.S. I'm not complaining; I just want to get in on it 

Dear Locked Out, 

It seems as if you have a real problem, not only with your 
roommate, but in making up your mind. I wouldn't call you 
a prude, but does It bother you that she has someone dif- 
ferent in the sack every weekend, and you're kicked out of 
your room; or does it bother you because you're not "in on 
it"? t suggest that you make up your mind about what 
bothers you and then explain it to your roommate. I'm sure 
she'll understand. 

Dear Aggie

for size goes to one in New Hampshire. It was 4,000 feet 
long and created a lake that contained 40 beaver lodges.

makes remarkably long trans-oceanic flights. Researchers 
have concluded that migrating snipes originating in New-

wintering grounds in the West Indies. Bermuda is approxi- 
mately 1,000 miles from Newfoundland and almost 770 
miles from the United States mainland.

SGA President Jim Trainer and Social House Chairperson 
Chip Cowher, talking over upcoming events. 

by Jerry Robbins, M.D. McManlman and 
N. Louise Swartley 

jim Trainer, President of Student Government, and Chip 
Cowher, Chairperson of Social House, were interviewed on 
November 17th. Their ideas and opinions about Student 
Government affairs arc disclosed. 

Q. 1$ the communication between students and S.G.A. Im- 
A. Yes, there is more diversity In representotion. The 
students are expressing their opinions to their class 
officers and are being heard by Student Government, 
jim - I would like to see more student Involvement and 
more feedback. Our commuter representatives are doing a 
good job in voicing the views and problems that com- 
muters face. 

Q. What are some upcoming events that Social House has 

A. A concert is being planned for March , featuring 
Gordon LightfooL We also plan to continue sponsoring 
tickets for some Philadelphia concerts. A small college 
conference is also a possibility for spring semester. 

Q. Looking back, what have been some of your accomplish- 
ments this past semester? 

A. The "new" radio station WDVC. We initiated action 
and recognized the problem of concern, then acted 
readily to settle IL The Improvement of Pool Hall - with 
Warren Robertson as acting manager. He seems to be 
enthusiastic about the revamping operation. Concerning 
the new Student Center, S.G.A. feels that they have 
taken it as far as they can; now it is up to Administration. 

Q. Do you both feel the bridge between Administration and 
S.G.A. has been crossed? 

A. The Administration is more open to S.G.A. than in the 
past Concerning social activities, most of the faculty 
members are getting more involved — yet they mainly 
have to be asked in order to attend. 

Q. jim, do you think you will run again next year for the 
S.G.A. presidency? 

A. "I really do not know." There are a lot of unexpected 
problems and frustrations Involved with the job! I will 
cross that road in April. 

Q. How and why are students more interested In Student 
Government and other organizations this year as com- 
pared to previous years? 

A. The students are reading the minutes that S.G.A. pro- 
vides - this may be because they are well written, enter- 
taining and informative. We have a good staff, who is 
more experienced and outgoing, trying to work directly 
with the students. Most people are earning their .5 credit 
per semester. Also joe Marron is a big help; he organizes 
and he is a central location for students and outside

With the war games and training programs under way In 
Egypt, we often wonder — how ready are our military forces 
for repulsion of an aggressive act by a foreign power? The 
Rapid Deployment Forces are the best trained men in the 
United States military. Their training mission, however, was 
over-shadowed by the crash of the second C-140 transport 
plane this year. The first slammed Into a helicopter in Iran 
during the first suge of the hostage rescue mission, killing 
eight men. Now the second C-140 crashed in Egypt four 
miles short of the runway, killing eleven men and two women. 
Does this mean that there is a problem within our military of 
either training or aircraft maintenance? 

On the manpower front, things are Improving signifi- 
cantly. With pay raises across the board for all miliury ser- 
vices, those who are currently enlisted will earn more and 
those who join will be getting better pay to start This means 
there will be more money for training Instructors. In some 
cases, the incentive will be to work harder than before and to 
do a better job. 


"Who shot You-Know-Who?" 

A recent poll was conducted by the Library concerning 
"Who Shot J.R.?" The top three suspects are: 


Sue Ellen's psychiatrist (Dr. Wilbe) 

Dusty Farlow (Sue Ellen's boyfriend) 

On Friday, November 21st, we will find out who shot 
j.R. Ewing! Watch and see if you're right! 


EFFORT (continued from page 1) 

safety behaviors. The curriculum, which uses positive, affirm- 
ing approaches to emphasize these behaviors to young 
children, has been evaluated as quite effective. The planned 
activities of ACUHO and NFPA will draw extensively on this 

Mr. Stephen T. Miller, Housing Officer at Princeton 
University and Chairperson of the Fire and Life Safety 
Program Sub-Committee of ACUHO underscored the interest 
of his group in the project "Students may not be aware of 
the fire dangers inherent in their lifestyles," he said. "Further- 
more, since college students are in the prime of physical and 
mertal powers they are very capable of getting out of the 
way should a fire occur." 

"Many students thus think harm from fire can't happen 
to them," he continued. "That, of course, is just not true. All 
we need do to explode that myth is remember the ten college 
students who were killed In a dormitory fire at Providence 
College, Rhode Island, a couple of years ago." 

The two groups urge college students to keep these fire 
safety thoughts in mind: 

• Remember that fire-fighting equipment, such as wall- 
mounted extinguishers, are there for everyone's protec- 
tion. Also, pulling false alarms Is a prank that can lead to 
loss and injury for many students as well as fire fighters. 

• Always extinguish smoking materials. 

• Use only one plug or electrical cord per socket 

• Become familiar with college buildings. Learn all means of 

The equipment front is in sad shape, unfortunately. True, 
the U.S. is now increasing the budget for military spending 
but It will not help in the short run. Also true, the U.S. will 
be looking more closely Into the MX missile and the B-1 
bomber but they too are future projects with an even longer 
completion deadline, around 1985. As far as ships go, there is 
a severe shortage of manpower to operate our vessels. Main- 
tenance of warships has also been a problem, keeping them In 
proper and operable condition. 

Some of our newest jets have run into unexpected prob- 
lems. The jets cost millions to build a substantial number. 
They require specifically trained personnel to fly them and 
to repair them. When something goes wrong, replacement 
parts are slow to come and expensive to get While the jets 
are waiting for repair they take up hangar space. One General 
calls them "Hangar Queens." 

With the coming of the Reagan administration and the 
programs of a strong America, most of these problenrts will 
be dealt with in a proper manner. We want all of our service- 
men in safe crafts with proper maintenance and fully opera- 
tional, to do the best job possible. 


SUi 1 • Demands Impact Statement on 

Pt. Pleasant Pumping Station 

From Bucks-Mont Courier - Nov. 18, 1980 

The Delaware Water emergency group, a public interest 
coalition, today at 2:30 will file suit in the Third District 
Federal Court in Philadelphia to halt further action, by the 
Delaware River Basin Commission for approval of the Point 
Pleasant diversion plan until an environmental impact state- 
ment is prepared adequately reviewing the project 

Noted environmental attorney Harold A. Lockwood, jr., 
filed the complaint in response to the decision by the Basin 
Commission's executive director, Gerald Hansler, to allow the 
project to proceed on the bads of a 1973 environmental 
study. Hansler claims that no new study is needed for the 
controversial project, which would uke 95 million gallons of 
water per day from the Delaware River for water supply to 
approximately 50 Bucks and Montgomery county municipal- 
ities. It would also provide cooling water for the Philadelphia 
Electric Co.'s Limerick nuclear generating plants. 

Lockwood states in the complaint that too many areas of 
environmental and cost/benefit concern have either been 
overlooked or inadequately evaluated. Backing up this claim 
are numerous local, state, and Federal officials who have also 
called for further study. 

Co-plaintiffs with the emergency group (DWEG) are 
Bucks County Audubon Society; Bucks County Land Use 
Task Force; Central Bucks Clean Energy Collective; Delaware 
River Shad Fishermen's Assn.; Limerick Ecology Action; The 
Sierra Club; Rita C. Banning, Montgomery Commissioner; 
Thomas McBrien and Mr. & Mrs. Graham Kinsman of Point 
Pleasant, Pa.; and Phyllis ZItzer of Salford, Pa. Defendants 
are the Delaware River Basin Commission and Gerald 
Hansler, Its executive director. 

The Basin Commission (made up of the Governors of 
Pennsylvania, New jersey, Delaware, and New York, and the 
Secretary of the Interior) has scheduled a public hearing on 
the project for Tuesday, November 18, at the Holiday Inn in 
Kulpsvllle, Montgomery County. DWEG will argue that the 
diversion would be an additional stress to a river in trouble. 
Others concerned about the precarious balance of the river 
include sportsmen and downstream municipalities who de- 
pend on the Delaware for their water supplies.

This week I had the pleasure of dining in one of the most 
elegant and enchanting restaurants found in this area. The 
Cock 'n Bull restaurant is located in an old country inn in 
historic Bucks County. You can dine before an open fire in 
the Hearth Room, or among the many antiques and country 
art of the Pewter Room. Whatever room you choose, you will 
be impressed by the colonial atmosphere and American 

The menu offers a choice of traditional American dishes 
such as: Roast Duckling in an orange sauce ($9.75); Country 
Chicken Pie ($6.25); and Virginia Baked Ham Steak ($7.95). 
I had the Veal Cutlet Parmlgiana ($8.95), which was lightly 
breaded veal patty covered with Italian sauce, provolone 
cheese, and mushrooms. Gail had the BlueHsh ($7.25). It was 
served with a Creole sauce and a side dish of rice. Each of our 
dinners included two vegetables (lightly breaded zucchini and 
peas), a salad (which is really elegant) and bread and butter. 
The salad bar is very superior to any other in the area. The 
Cock 'n Bull has a choice of more than four kinds of bread, 
from pumpernickel to nut bread. Most dinners range from 
$6.25 to $12.95. 

The Cock 'n Bull is open daily for lunch and dinner. It is 
suggested that you make reservations for dinner. 

The Cock 'n Bull restaurant is located in Peddlers 
Village. Take 202 North to Lahaska. 

After lunch or dinner you might want to browse through 
Peddlers Village. There are over forty shops which include 
anything from antiques to gourmet food.

This year the infirmary is no longer issuing medical 
excuses, as you hopefully know by this time. No longer can 
one wake up, be struck suddenly with the dreaded disease 
"classitls notephobia", and call the Infirniary for an excuse. 
The student must decide if he or she h capable of going to 
class or If an unexcused absence is necessary. The student Is 
allowed double the number of absences as the number of 
credits for the course, in case of illnesses for which a student 
is absent for several days, medical excuses can be arranged 
through Mr. Tasker's office. 

Almost a semester has gone by with this policy in effect 
Students were polled to get their opinion. They were asked, 
"How to you feel about the new policy on medical excuses?" 
Here are their replies: 

'81 AH - Dan Persons - Disapproves because of personal 
experiences with It. 

'82 DH - Betty DIehl - Approves. Let the student face the 

'82 Chem - Bob Porambo - Doesn't matter; either way Is 


'84 AH - Bob Bodine - The policy is alright Seems fair. 

'81 BA - Sharon Gadd - Disapproves. Feels there are too 
many cuts, but doesn't like going to the nurse either. 

'82 Agron - Danny Roerig - Approves. Then you don't have 
to run around for excuses. 

'83 Fl - Don Herold - Disapproves. Not fair to those who 
are legitimately sick as to those who are just cutting. 

'83 Bio - Holly Turner - Disapproves. Too many cuts are 
allowed and you should be able to get an excuse If you miss 
a class because you're sick. 

'81 AH - Patty Casey - It is a better system, because before 
people were faking and still got excuses. 

'81 Hort - Sherry Daniels - It is better because anybody 
could get an excuse before, but doesn't like the system of a 
limited number of cuts. Liked old system of unlimited cuts 
for general studies courses for juniors. 
'82 OH - Rich Waiko ~ Approves, but doesn't think students 
should cut since they are paying for it

What a season! The Aggies opened football practice on 
August 17th, but at that time who would have thought they 
would win the MAC Northern Division Championship. 

In spite of two non-division losses to Washington & Lee 
and Widener, the Aggies bounced back to take a 30-8 victory 
over the Wilkes Colonels. Del Val then traveled to Moravian 
for a non-division game in which they lost 13-0 before return- 
ing home to Uke a crushing 48-Odivision victory over F. D.U.- 

The next game matched our Aggies against the then 
unbeaten Lycoming Warriors. The Aggies' 9-0 victory left 
them sitting alone atop the MAC Northern Division sundings. 

The Aggies never lost this Number One standing as they 
continued their winning ways. With wins over Susquehanna 
(12-0), Juniata (17-3), and the big game over Albright which 
gave them the outright MAC Northern Division Champion- 

This was the first MAC Northern Division Championship 
at DVC and the Ram Pages would like to congratulate Coach 
Wilson and his staff as well as all the members of the team. 


The Building of Champions

What is the women's volleyball team made of? A brief 
background gives us a glimpse of how the team began. 

In 1978 volleyball started out as a club with few members. 
In 1979, through the involvement of the Athletic Department 
and increased interests of the women in the student body, a 
schedule was created pitting the women's volleyball team 
against other colleges with women's volleyball teams. Their 
first season was experimental in nature; nonetheless the team 
was given a birth as the newest sport here at Del Val. 

At the end of the season two problems developed. The 
team coach, Diane Swartz, was leaving the college at the end 
of the school year. Second, six of the thirteen women on the 
team were to graduate or transfer from Delaware Valley. That 
meant for the 1980 season it would be like starting over with 
a new coach and new team members coming in with those 
who would be returning. 

In the fall of 1980, the women's volleyball team saw a 
new coach in Kathy Kravitz. Returning to the team were 
Holly Funk, senior and co-capuin; Gail Garthwaite, junior 
and co-capuin; Jean Stump, Sue Mason, Denise Yeager,and 
Alice Mark, all sophomores. New to the team were Jan 
Nystrand, senior; Patti Rissinger and Lorri Gerus, juniors; 
Kathy McMahon, sophomore; and introducing the future 
volleyball players for Del Val: Nancy Callahan, Michelle 
Forry, Wanda Perugini, Debra Rizzo, Alison Scheib, Jackee 
Smith, Doni Westover and Missy Young, all freshmen. 

Despite their record, the women on the women's volley- 
ball team will be building and molding the team's destiny in 
the years to follow. The MAC championship could be next 
year, or the year after, but it is eventual. Good Luck women 
in 1981.

Third-year head coach Les 
Lombardi has seven returning let- 
termen and five new faces making 
up the 1980-81 edition of the 
Aggie basketball team. Last season 
the Aggies, plagued by injuries to 
key players, posted a 5-19 record 
but the younger players gained 
plenty of experience. Early this 
season, the injury plague set in 
and only this past week has every- 
one been able to practice. 
Leading the returning lettermen this year as Captain will 
be senior forward Tom Kehoe, the Aggies' third leading 
scorer last year. After leaving the team at the end of the first 
semester last season, 6'6" senior center Bill Walter has re- 
turned and is expected to be one of the top "Big Men" in 
the Middle Atlantic Conference. 

Don Rogge and Gerry Lutz, both sophomores, will be 
trying to break into the starting lineup. Rogge, just coming 
off an injury, has improved offensively and always made 
things happen defensively last year. New additions include 
Keith Cooper, a junior, and sophomore Phil Webb, who will 
also be battling for playing time at the forward position. 
The Aggie backup in the middle will be senior Lyn Matthews 
last year's Most Improved Player. 

The Aggies will have an abundance of guards. Junior Mark 
Tymes, who last year set the school assist record for a season 
at 126, and senior Dale Lawrence will share the point guard 
position. Two freshmen. Jay Nichols and George Ceniviva, 
should prove to be factors in the success of this year's squad. 
Gary Ulrich, up from last year's Junior Varsity, should 
provide experience and depth at both guard positions. 

This season Lombardi has set a winning year as his main 
goal and it will take a rapid blending of talent and con- 
sistency both on offense and defense to break into a winning

Bucks County Community College held an IHSA horse 
show at Milestone, Doylestown, on November 16th. The Del 
Val team tied for 4th place out of 19 colleges but still holds 
onto the top position in overall points. I would like to thank 
all the members who helped BCCC put the show on by work- 
ing before, during, and after on such a cold day. We had 
spectators from DVC and I would like to thank them for 
their support and encouragement

ago, Jim made All MAC by finishing 5th in the MAC Cham- 
pionships held at Chester Park. 

Adding to the DVC Fall Sports Specucular was the team's 
overall performance at last week's regional competition. Of 
33 teams, our guys took 1 1th, knocking off three teams that

Kathy Clute, a junior Orna- 
nnental Horticulture major from 
Kendall Park, New Jersey, has 
recently received the Neal W. 
Munch Conservation Scholarship. 
The Neal W. Munch Conserva- 
tion Scholarships and the similar 
Marvin A. Clark Conservation 
Scholarships are awarded accord- 
ing to the following criteria: 
1. The applicant must be a 
resident of the Freehold, N.J., 

Soil Conservation District. This includes Middlesex and 

Monmouth Counties. 

2. Must have successfully completed or y/ill have completed 
by the award date, two years of study at an accredited 

3. Must be an undergraduate enrolled in a curriculum major- 
ing in an agricultural or natural resource conservation area. 

4. The Scholarships will be awarded to the student or 
students selected by the Supervisors of the Freehold Soil 
Conservation District. 

The Scholarship was brought to the attention of the 
Clutes through an ad in a local newspaper. An application 
was secured and submitted. The applicant was also required 
to write an essay on herself, her activities, and her grades. 

Out of 33 applicants, six finalists were chosen. Kathy 
competed with students from Rutgers State University, 
Michigan State University, Cornell University, Mount St. 
Clare College and the University of Maine. The finalists each 
had a personal interview where the applicant's future ambi- 
tions and qualifications for the Scholarship were discussed. 
Four $500 Scholarships were awarded. 

Here at DVC, Kathy is involved in the Ornamental Horti- 
culture and Floral Societies and is also a football and basket- 
ball cheerleader. She is presently employed at Wright's Roses, 
a wholesale florist in Cranberry, N.J. 

After graduation from DVC, Kathy would like to enter a 
field of plant breeding and hybridizing. Although further 
education is being considered, Kathy plans on working for 
a while first. 

Best of luck in whatever you decide, and congratulations,

The last of the original farms of DVC is the Home Farm, 
or Home Place. This was the first of the many purchases 
which, when combined, became the National Farm School's 
land. Located a mile from Doylestown on the Reading Line, 
the 1 22-acre farm was purchased in 1 896 by the founder of 
the school. Dr. Joseph Krauskopf. 

The farmland consisted of the area where Miller Hall is 
now to the old flagpole over to the New Britain Road. It 
contained part of the land presently occupied by the apple 
orchard and also some land on the other side of the New 
Britain Road underpass. 

Originally located on the land were a farmhouse, a spring- 
house, and barns. The farmhouse, built in 1749, still remains 
and is the residence of Dr. and Mrs. Feldstein and their 
fami^y. The barns remain or were rebuilt on the same site. 
The springhouse was also rebuilt and what is now known as 
the Aaron Building was constructed in 1 899 over the spring- 

In the past fifty years the "Home Place" house has served 
as the residence of the following men and their families: Mr. 
Goodling, Mr. Strong, Mr. Groman, Dr. Meyer, Dr. Work, and 
Dr. Feldstein.

The Senior Class trip to the Bahamas has been changed to 
Monday, May 18 through Friday May 22, 1981. We have 
also negotiated new prices. Single $416, Double $346, 
Triple $336, and Quads $326. The Class will pay $50 per 
person toward their trip as long as they are in the Senior 
Class, which will bring the prices down to Single $366, 
Double $296, Triple $286, and Quads $276. We have 
dropped the Continental breakfast since the price quoted is 
the same as on the menu, so we will leave that up to you. 

On November 20-23, Twenty-One Tours provided me with 
a trip to the Holiday Inn in Freeport, Bahamas, to check 
things out for the Senior trip. 

The native people are relaxed and friendly and try to 
make your vacation an enjoyable one. Tours leave daily from 
the hotel to town, and to many of the gardens. Tours start at 

The Bahamian Club is at the Bahama Princess Hotel and 
provides an exciting native show for only $11.00; the price 
includes show plus two drinks. Across the street from the 
Club is the Casino (blackjack - minimum $5 and $10 tables, 
slot machines, 25c - $1.00). There is also a Las Vegas Review 
at the Casino (burlesque). The International Bazaar (shops 
from around the world) and the straw market are also across 
from the Casino. (continued on page 2) 

ARCHER (part 2) 

by Dwight Bohm 

The beginning of Lake Archer was very sudden; the lake 
was dug and filled within a year, trees were planted, fish 
were stocked, and the lake stood pretty much as you see it 

The lake has not changed much, but it still has practical 
purposes unknown to most students. The fish that were 
stocked there years ago have gotten larger. Carp caught in the 
lake weighed more than 15 pounds. Bass weighing three to 
four pounds have been caught. Other inhabitants include 
suckers, fresh water eels, sunfish and catfish. Migratory water- 
fowl also use Lake Archer while on their ^urney up the East 
coast. Animals seem to be the only users of the lake, but the 
school also indulges in Archer's services in teaching some 
courses. Microbiology uses samples from the lake for studies 
of microscopic organisms. Limnology classes study the overall 
content of the water. 

Lake Archer is also a water reserve in case of fire; it 
deserves partial credit for keeping Work Hall from burning 
down last year. 

Few students know of Lake Archer's capabilities. You can 
fish there with a good degree of success. Ice skating and 
relaxing on the benches distributed around the lake's peri- 
meter reflect two other uses made of this watery asset to our 


By now, all our contesting rooms are registered for the 
decoration judging which will be held on Monday, December 
8th between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. The judging team will consist 
of volunteer faculty and administration, and the rooms will 
be judged on four criteria: originality, use of materials, 
continuity and overall effect. The awards are as follows: 
First prize: $50 

Second prize: $25 
Third prize: $10 

The winners will be announced and the prizes will be 
awarded at the Band-Chorale Christmas Concert on Tuesday 
evening, December 9th. 



1. Use safety lights. Two sets of lights per room. 

2. Use artificial trees. 

3. Use Christmas decorations such as balls, tinsel and orna- 


1. Paint on doors or decorate with highly flammable 

2. String lights on paper material, in/on ceilings of rooms, or 

3. Use live trees or greens in rooms or hallways. 

4. Use candles or any other burning materials. 

5. Use multiple sockets. 

6. Decorate on roofs of residence halls. 

7. Hang paper on hallway walls. 

PARSONS: 43rd in Nation 

by M. D. McManiman 

The 8th Annual Division III Crosi Country National 
Championships were held November 22 In Rochester, New 
York, and for the first time since 1962, Delaware Valley 
College was represented. Team co-captain Jim Parsons, who 
finished 5th in the MAC's and 10th -n Regionals, was Del 
Val's sole representative. 

The event was hosted by Rochester University and held 
on the shore of Lake Ontario at nearby Eastman Duran 
Country Club. The five-mile course was quite muddy and 
consisted of several tortuous hills. The start of the race was 
staggered and the two groups joined 200 yards later to 
combat the 5-mile course. 

Jim started the race well in the top 75, and by the 3-mile 
mark he was 44th. One mile later he was 35th — only one 
mile and 10 places from making All-American status. Shortly 
after the 4-mile mark, Jim began to run out of "gas". By the 
end of the race, his face showed the exhaustion of someone 
who had given it everything he had. His efforts were good 
enough for the 43rd position, out of a field of 250 men, with 
a time of 26:17. After the race, I spoke with coach Doc 
Berthold and with Jim. Doc said he was pleased with Jim's 
run and couldn't have asked for much more. Jim was not as 
happy as Doc and thought he could have done better. "I just 
didn't have it. It just wasn't like a championship race. I gave 
all I had, but you can only hold a peak for so long." 

Special thanks are extended to Joe, Carl, Rick, Mike, Jim, 
Rich and Galen for taking the time to drive up to Rochester 
to cheer Jim on! 



The 1980 Northern Division Coaches Football All-Star 
Team was named this week and was dominated by Delaware 
Valley as they got eight of 22 starting team positions. 

The Aggies offense was well represented, as four Aggies 
were named to the first team and one to the honorable men- 
tion team. Senior Gary Waiters was named to the starting 
team at uckle, junior Greg Setta at center, sophomore Eric

To the Students of Delaware Valley College - 

If you are anything like the student body I was a member 
of over ten years ago, you probably are concerned about the 
kind of education you are receiving by attending Delaware 
Valley College. Often such concern is expressed as the ques- 
tion of whether or not a larger college or university would 
provide a different educational experience from the one you 
are involved in now at DVC. 

At large schools, graduate students often are responsible 
for teaching undergraduate course labs and lectures as teach- 
ing assistants. Their own research and degree program course 
work has a higher priority than the teaching of undergraduate 
courses. Each graduate student is often responsible for a large 
number of undergraduate students. There Is little time avail- 
able in a graduate student's schedule for each student he or 
she is teaching. Faculty are involved in conducting their own 
research, supervising their graduate students, teaching gradu- 
ate level courses, and finally teaching undergraduate courses. 

Students at DVC have advantages over their counterparts 
at larger schools in terms of the quality of education received. 
Labs and lectures at DVC are taught directly by the faculty. 
You have the benefit of relatively small classes, insuring an 
excellent faculty-to-student ratio. The faculty at DVC is 
much more accessible than faculty at larger institutions, and 
they are dedicated to teaching. Those also conducting 
research often do so as part of the program at DVC that 
encourages independent research by seniors. Additionally, 
the curriculum offered at DVC is another factor that makes 
an education received at the college very comprehensive. 

I know I have benefited from getting my undergraduate 
degree at DVC. I hope you all will make good use of the 
excellent educational experience it provides.

With the change to daylight saving time and our first 
snowfall, we are reminded of the increase in accident statis- 
tics. To avoid becoming one, we must become more safety 
oriented. Give yourself more time to get to school and allow 
more time going home. SLOW DOWN! Wet roads with a layer 
of leaves are just as hazardous as ice and should be treated in 
the same fashion. Check that car battery, and the brakes for 
malfunctions and get them fixed. Get the snow tires out and 
check those treads; bald tires are good for nothing. Don't 
forget the antifreeze; drain the radiator and renew with fresh 
coolant. Most imporunt, WATCH OUT for the other guy; his 
mistake could be your last Be careful and have a safe winter.

Have you ever found a good parking spot in the DVC 
parking lot? Are you aggravated, frustrated and disgusted 
that on-campus students get the best parking spots at our 
expense? We feel that parking rules are unfair to DVC 
commuters and need immediate change. 

Commuters drive their cars daily, ** while on-campus 
students use their cars less frequently. No one wants to walk 
the 14-miie distance from the parking lot to one's classroom, 
but with resident students utilizing the best spots, commuters 
find themselves walking nearly 14-mile to class. 

A change can easily be brought about by issuing a special 
sticker to on-campus cars, requiring their owners to park 
them toward the back of the lot. 

Let's all put our commuter complaint box to use and let 
the student government know how we feel. Dropping a note 
in the box is easier than walking 14-mile in wintry weather, 
but this change can occur only if we commuters organize.

This is the phrase that administrators like to hear from 
parents and visitors who come to Del Val. But really, what is 
happening with the beautification of our college campus? As 
far as full-time help goes, we have Elmer Russell and his co- 
workers." On the part-time scene, we have the work study 
people; Mary Richards, Steve Diebler, Ted Zelner, just to 
name a few. 

This time of year their job is to clean up the leaves, clear 
out the flower beds, and keep the paths and lawn area free of 
debris. Yes, they have had their bad days (or should i say, a 
bad week) getting out those two tree stumps in front of 
Lasker Hall. Then there is the time that they spend cleaning 
up the leaves around Dr. Feldstein's house. However, overall, 
we really appreciate all the hard work they put in keeping 
our campus looking the way it does. 

Most of the campus improvements come from individual 
students and clubs. Our college clubs have the people and 
money more available to do the work. Money and manpower 
are the reasons the college ukes time to get Improvements 
made around campus. 

It is up to all of us to keep our campus clean. If the van- 
dalism is eliminated, money spent to clean it up can be used 
to beautify the campus even more. Let's work together to 
make Delaware Valley College one of the best-looking cam- 
puses ever seen. 


Many people, including myself, have worked hard over 
the years to make DVC's campus attractive with plantings 
of trees, shrubs and other plant material. Those who benefit 
most from this continued effort are the students who live on 

Please do not cut or use any greens or other plant material 
growing on the campus.

Tony Novak 

I found the RA's of Ulman Hall to be most interesting to 
interview and very personable individuals. Tony Novak '82 
and Tom Fournier '83 are first year RA's on the first and 
third floors, respectively. Neil Burdick '82 was an RA last 
spring semester and he returns to the second floor for 
another year. 

Tony is from Collegevllle, PA. 
His down-to-earth and optimistic 
nature seem to be the key to his 
personality. He is an animal hus- 
bandry major and he is interested 
in specializing in the livestock 
industry. Tony and his fiancee 
expect to own and manage their 
own farm in Berks County; Tony 
is also interested in the potential 
of livestock ova transplant. 

Tony's hobbies include acrylic 
painting and woodwork, particu- 
larly refinishing furniture. At one time, he had thought about 
being an art major. 

The past two years, Tony has been a member of the wrest- 
ling team and he expects to begin his training with the team 
in January. Although Tony is not an official member of other 
organizations, he is very supportive of the activities. He sees 
the morale around campus to be more positive than in the 
past; he believes that a college such as DVC has a lot of poten- 
tial and that the opportunities should be used. Tony accepts 
the challenges he faces and the hard work to get them; he 
looks forward to knowing that he got there on his own 

Neil is a dairy husbandry major 
from Jenkintown, PA. He has sup- 
ported his philosophy that prac- 
tical experiences are the key to 
continual learning. He has not had 
any dairy experience until he 
came to DVC but he believes that 
his prior experiences have contri- 
buted to the transition. He chal- 
lenges himself to try something 
different all the time; "people are 
unsure of their potential until 
they try it and then they are 

Neil Burdick 

rewarded by finding out they accomplished it (the task)." 
Upon graduation from high school, Neil attended West- 
minster College for a short time as a biology major; he ex- 
pected to enter the teaching profession. Neil then entered 
Beaver College and began his concentration in social work. 
He began a practicum study at a child detention center and 
soon became an employee of the center for five years, rather 
than continuing at Beaver. He then spent a year as a live-in 
house parent in a youth group home for 16-18 year olds. 
Neil's career goal is to farm for himself or to return to a 
child care detention center and be involved in an agricultural 
rehabilitation program. He is currently employed part-time at 
a local farm owned by Tex Peters. He has seen the mystique 
and glamour of a dairy farm turn into hard work that is 
healthy and worth it. 

Neil participates in intramural volleyball and Softball. He 
is also a member of the Block and Bridle Club. A majority of 
Neil's Saturdays are spent playing rugby for the Black Thorn 
Rugby Club. A hobby he enjoys when he can find the time is 
stained glass work. 

Tom's hometown is Merlon, 
CT, and he is one of eleven 
children. He is an ornamental 
horticulture major and he hopes 
to work with breeding and large- 
scale production of floral supplies. 
Although this is Tom's first 
year as an RA, he was selected to 
be a member of the RA Execu- 
tive Committee and he is also the 
RA representative on student 
government. He has been a mem- 
Tom Fournier ^er of the O.H. Club for two 

years. Tom is employed by the College's work study program 
for the Landscaping Department He is a groundskeeper for 
two residences in Doylestown. 

Tom enjoys travelling abroad, swimming and indoor gar- 
dening. He has raised horses and he tries to make time for 

Tom looks upon college as four years of independence 
and a growing experience that requires a lot of work; it's not 
just fun and games, according to Tom.

Dorm maintenance has been a long running battle here at 
Del Val and at most other colleges and universities across the 
country. We all see something wrong in our dorms and all we 
do is grumble about it or say to a friend, "Those maintenance 
guys are blank, blank, blank . . . etc." But really, what is 
being done about repairing the damages? 

For the past two to three weeks, maintenance problems 
have cropped up in Goldman Hail: stolen fire bells, dis- 
charged extinguishers, and broken windows littered the Hall. 
No student should touch any fire apparatus unless there is a 
real fire. Most students on Goldman second floor are aware 
that the bells kept falling off the wall. The problem: a special 
plate was ordered to hold the bells to the wall. The reason 
they were put up: Maintenance knew the bells may fall out, 
but by law the bells must be present in the dorm or the build- 
ing would have to be evacuated. 

Work, Barness, and Cooke Halls have also fallen into dis- 
repair. Showers, bathrooms, ceilings . . . etc., are in need of 
restoration. Good News is about to strike! Stephen Zenko, 
Director of Residence Life, has reported they have been 
aware of the problems and are preparing to rectify them. 
Maintenance iust hired four students through work study to 
assist them with their repairs. They are going to do some 
work during second semester, and most of the work over the 
summer. If you are interested in this program, see the Finan- 
cial Aid Office. 

Future projects that are being taken into consideration 
are new lounge furniture, new lighting systems for Eison and 
Wolfson Halls, and dorm damage committees. Also, any ideaj 
you may have to improve dorm conditions can be submitted 
to your RA, or to the Residence Life Office. For the com- 
muters - keep the faith, the college is still working on plans 
for a new student center. It is their No. 1 priority to see that 
the commuters can have it better than ever before. 

Remember, the maintenance staff is only human. The 
weather gets to them also. When one or two men get sick, 
they fall behind schedule. When they work on special 
projects, they also fall behind. When they have to work at a 
farm, administrative or classroom building, they fail behind. 
Above all, have patience and try to help them when you can. 
It can only help by getting all the work done faster.

As a result of the large increase in tuition, most students 
have found it necessary to obtain at least one part-time job 
over the summer and then another through the school year. 
For most of us, it doesn't really matter what job we get, as 
long as it pays well. 

The jobs most frequently obtained are as a worker in a 
fast food restaurant and cashier of some sort, usually in a 
large supermarket. However, this is not always the case. Many 
of the students I ulked to iiad obuined jobs in their major 
field of study. Ornamental Horticulture major Rich Weidman 
worked In a nursery this summer. Annette White, an Animal 
Husbandry major, trained brood mares and weanlings. )im 
Parsons worked for a company this summer in the Accounts 
Receivable area. Jim is a Business Administration student. Ail 
of these students could have used their job to fulfill their 
employment program requirements. 

Other students are not as lucky at finding a job in their 
major. Some of these students do find interesting jobs, 
though. Bill Givas worked over the summer as a line painter 
for roads. Bill has also been a cook in a restaurant, a car 
parking attendant and an umpire for Little League sports. 
Other jobs of students are: greenhouse worker, auto body 
worker, construction worker, waiter, painter . . . you name 
it, and someone here at DVC has probably done It! 


Trustees are not the administrators of higher educational 
institutions; they are, however, responsible for relations with 
the President, for policy and planning, for developing finan- 
cial resources and support, and they play a major role in the 
institution's external relations. 

the President is responsible to the Board for executing its 

Trustees are custodians of an institution's resources and 
oversee management of its finances. They retain direct con- 
trol over major changes in the physical plant and indirect 
responsibility for its maintenance and repair. 

Trustees approve an institution's budget, setting fees and 
other charges. In financial affairs the trustees must confine 
themselves, as they do in academic matters, to basic policy. 

Public relations is one of the primary concerns of the 
Trustees. They encourage and support the efforts of the 
President and suff, but their most effective service in this 
connection is as direct representatives and interpreters of the 
institution to the public. 

Trustees necessarily deal with many matters in addition to 
the functions already described. Among these are: approving 
introduction or deletion of curricuiums (but not of particular 
courses); setting salary schedules; approving statutes and by- 
laws; and handling the institution's legal affairs. They receive, 
through the President, the periodic reports of committees, 
auditors, and staff; they approve the awarding of degrees. A 
major responsibility of the Board is to ensure continuous 
institutional assessment and planning. 


In the early morning hours of December 13, 1977, the 
festive anticipation of Christmas vacation and post-finals 
celebration at Providence College, Rhode Island, was abruptly 
dashed. Fire suddenly raced through the fourth floor corridor 
of Aquinas Hall Dormitory and in the heat- and smoke-filled 
confusion ten young women died. 

Apparently mundane and innocent aspects of dorm life 
led to that horrible event, and, as is the case with most tragic 
fires, the death and destruction could have been prevented. 

Though usually less catastrophic, residence hall fires are 
not uncommon. Life styles of college students are in some 
ways especially susceptible to fire hazards. Over-loading 
electrical circuits with heating appliances, typewriters and 
lamps and using improperly gauged extension cords are 
common contributors. 

As with most residential fires, the leading cause is the 
cigarette. Smoking materials most often light upholstery or 
bedding when the smoker falls asleep. Candles, a favorite 
atmospheric light source, commonly cause fires when they 
burn near papers or draperies. 

Unfortunately, arson, usually malicious or mischievous in 
nature, is another frequent cause of campus fires. In a recent 
incident, for example, newspapers were crumpled up, thrown 
into an elevator, doused with gasoline and ignited, resulting 
in $170,000 of damage. 

But the completely innocent and well-intentioned activ- 
ities of dorm residents can be dangerous too. According to an 
investigation by the National Fire Protection Association, an 
independent, non-profit fire safety group, the cause of the 
Providence College fire was a hair dryer being used in a closet. 

The residence hall had conducted a contest for the best 
Christnus decorations, so the walls were thickly covered with 
combustible materials - posters, wreaths, crepe paper and 
Christmas trees. Combustible decorations, especially Christ- 
mas trees, are very dangerous in campus residences. At 
Providence the fire just raced along theie decorations. 

The entire college community hopes that our holiday 
season on campus will be joyous, festive and, above all, a 
safe and memorable holiday. Every student is asked to take 
precautionary measures when considering holiday decora- 
tions. Remember, this is your home away from home.

The Big Shakeup 

by Warren Lewis 

The earthquake in and around Naples, Italy, has killed 
thousands, and left hundreds of thousands injured and home- 
less. Aftershocks from the quake and bad weather continue 
to hamper rescue efforts. Some rescuers fall victim to the 
quake trying to help others when they are swallowed up by 
the earth or caught under falling debris of buildings. 

Countries around the world, including the U.S., Canada 
and Great Britain, have sent food, clothing, doctors, medical 
supplies, digging equipment, and hundreds of volunteers 
willing to help out under such difficult circumstances. You 
can't help admiring these people for their courage and 
bravery for the job they do saving human lives.

Welcome Aboard! Prepare yourself for the ultimate in 
seafood dining. The Boston Sea Party is not for landlubbers, 
but for a person with a seagoing appetite. As you gaze upon 
the feast that they have set out, you'll know you're in for an 
unforgettable evening. 

As we set sail for each of the three piers, you can look in 
awe at the interior of this restaurant The main lobby is 
decorated with all types of seagoing paraphernalia. On the 
wall leading into the main dining area is the bow of an old 
sailing ship. While entering the main dining room, we felt as if 
we were walking up the gangplank of a ship to a feast fit for 
the capuin's Ubie. Many beautiful paintings of historical 
Boston and its fishing ports hang on the walls. 

We are now ready to dock at Pier I, which has appetizers 
and salads. Pier I has fresh crisp vegetables and lettuce, so you 
can create your own salad. Appetizers include shrimp in the 
rough, clams on the half-shell, oysters, and smoked freshwater 
fish. It also has caviar, and herring in a rich sour cream sauce. 
You can visit Pier I as many times as you like, but save room 
for the many more seafood delights yet to come. 

Pier II is the next stop, before the highlight of the evening. 
You may select entrees such as Alaskan king crab legs, shrimp 
marinated in a broth of spices, Boston scrod, oysters Rocke- 
feller, and steamed clams. Then you can enjoy shrimp Creole, 
seafood Newburg in a rich cheese and wine sauce. Also 
featured here are corn on the cob and barbequed ribs. 

We are now ready for the highlight of the evening: a 
choice of a whole Maine lobster. New York strip steak, or a 
prime rib that melts in your mouth. Gail enjoyed the lobster, 
the only drawback being the lobster looked at her while she 
was eating it. I had the prime rib, but I could barely finish 
it, as there was so much. 

For the final adventure we docked at Pier III. Before us 
was a dessert line fit for a king. Featured was a large selection 
of fine cheeses, fresh fruits (I even had a piece of watermelon 
in November), cheesecake, a spice cake, and many more 
freshly baked pastries. This Pier also can be revisited unlimit- 
ed times. 

Everything you eat must be enjoyed on board, because 
there are no doggy bags, though you will be tempted to take 
a little of everything home. You can take with you a satisfied 
appetite, and fond memories of a most enjoyable evening. 

Besides good food, the service that you get at the Boston 
Sea Party is very good. A waitress is on hand at all times to 
take care of your dining desires. 

It is recommended that you make reservations in advance. 
And to enjoy your meal thoroughly, allow at least two 
hours to dine. 

This entire feast is one set price of $18.95, for all three 
Piers, and the entree. 

I was overwhelmed by the whole evening; it is an experi- 
ence that everyone must have at least once. We have eaten in 
many of the seafood restaurants, and this by far was the most 
delicious meal that I had the pleasure to enjoy. 

To get to the Boston Sea Party from DVC, uke 202 North 
to the 611 Bypass, and travel on 611 South about ten miles. 
The Boston Sea Party is on the righthand side.

OVC's 1980-81 wrestling season is under way. The Aggies, 
who are ranked twentieth in the NCAA Division III pre- 
season poll, are looking for their best season ever. 

Coach Bob Marshall, in his seventh year as head coach, is a 
little reserved on his outlook for the season. "There is a lot 
that can happen between now and the end of February," he 
said. "We do have ulent to make the best showing ever but 
things can happen. For example, we lost two excellent pros- 
pects before we even started practice. One was a freshman 
who was third in the' state in high school and the other was a 
senior letter winner." 

There are eight Aggie lettermen returning for this season's 
lineup, including two All-Americans in Warren Robertson 
(190) and )eff Bartholomew (HWT). Other returnees include 
senior Paul Pearson (158), who has qualified for nationals the 
last two years, Frank Losaigo (Jr., 118), Cart Nebhut (So., 
167), Rich Ness (So., 126), Tony Novak (Jr., 134), and Tom 
Trumbauer (So., 1 18). 

Coach Marshall will start five freshmen this season. The 
five are, Rich Wagner (126), Joe Orr (134), Troy Marshall 
(142), Mark Sands (ISO), and Bruce Stajnrajh (158). Two 
other freshmen who should provide excellent depth are 
Charles Wilson at 142 and Fred Siegfried (HWT). 

The Aggies' biggest challenges this season will come from 
Ellzabethtown, who is ranked eleventh, and Lycoming, who 
is ranked fifteenth. 


Dec. 3-Upsala, at Ursinus; Dec. 1 0-Swarthmore, LaSalle, at 
Delaware State; Dec. 13-at Wilkes; Jan. 21-Scranton; Jan. 24- 
at Lycoming; Jan. 28-Susquehanna; Feb. 3-Kings; Feb. 7- 
Moravian, Muhlenberg; Feb. 9-at Messiah; Feb. 11-at Ellza- 
bethtown; Feb. 14-at Western Maryland. 


November 5, 1980, is a date to be recorded in the annals 
of women's basketball at Delaware Valley College, as twelve 
players strayed into the James Work Gymnasium to begin an 
intensive training camp. In the past, one could view an Aggie 
to practice of "3 on 3" or "4 on 5" but never "5 on 5" with 
two substitutes! Beside the fact the twelve have remained in 
camp, they have shown signs of competitiveness and dedica- 

Returning lettermen include: senior Brenda Wolfe. Wolfe 
has been a starter for the "Women Aggies" since her freshman 
year. In forty games she has scored a total of 411 points, 
averaging 10 per game. Last season Wolfe went to the foul 
line 37 times making 26, a 70 percent efficiency rating. 
Although she is considered "undersized" for a center, 
Wolfe's play at that crucial position is legitimate. 

Complementing Wolfe at the forward spots will be 
sophomore Susan Hartung and freshman Sandy Yerkes. 
During the off-season, Hartung worked diligently on a weight 
training program and improved her individual skills. To match 
her hard work is one year's experience, and these two factors 
have enabled her to gain a starting berth. An untested college 
player, Yerkes will be seeing dual action as a guard and for- 
ward. Her understanding of the game, coupled with her size 
and ability, has enabled her to adjust to the "Aggie style". 

Rounding out the starting five will be junior Patti 
Rissinger and sophomore Marcia Werner. Rissinger has played 
both forward and guard for the Aggies; however, with the 
addition of Yerkes, Rissinger will be able to concentrate on 
the guard position. In two years, Rissinger has scored 317 
points and is ranked fourth on the all-time scoring list for 
the Women Aggies. Coach Vellner, in her seventh year, is de- 
pending upon Werner to quarterback the team. In her first 
two college games of '79, Werner handled the leadership role 
In place of injured graduating seniior Joyce Newswanger. With 
a year's experience, and Newswanger as a tutor, Werner 
should be ready for the challenge. 

Other returning letter winners who will be seeing action 
include: Diane Bradley and Donna Cassano. The freshmen 
who round out the Aggie roster are: Missy Young, Debbie 
Rizzo, Nancy Bulanchuk, Jenny Gioielli and Laura Stephen- 

The Women Aggies are in the strongest division of the 
Middle Atlantic Conference. Included in their northeast divi- 
sion are perennial powers Scranton and Upsala. Wilkes 
College, led by Ail-American Diane Kendig will be another 
strong opponent as well as Kings College and Drew University. 
All of the conference games are scheduled as away contests! 

Nov. 24-Holy Family; Dec. 4-at Wilkes; Dec. 6-at Western 
Maryland; Dec. 11-at Drew; Dec. 13-Messiah; Jan. 17-Allen- 
town; Jan. 20-at Franklin & Marshall; Jan 22-at Lycoming; 
Jan. 24-at Albright; Jan. 27-Cedar Crest; Jan. 28-at Scranton;

Ogontz; *^eb. 10-at Kings; Feb. 12-Ursinus; Feb. 18-at Wide- 
ner; Feb. 21-at Upsala. 


After nearly three weeks without the "staple of life" 
students are again feasting in the David Lenin Dining Hall. 
This may only be temporary, as a national peanut butter 
shortage is being forecast for the coming months. Is this a 
result of the drought or of the presidential election? 


Men's Intramural Basketball and Women's Intramural 
Floor Hockey will be starting second semester. It is important 
that all rosters for these sports be given to Mr. Wolfgang 
before December 23.

ceives County production awards. 

The Annual Bucks County Dairy Herd Improvement 
Association (D.H.I.A.) meeting was held November 21, 1980. 
Delaware Valley College's Holstein herd placet! high herd in 
the County for milk and fat production with 45.5 cows, 
19,637 lbs. milk, 3.6% fat and 710 lb. fat 

Also DVC Astro Annabelle was high cow for milk and 
fat with actual 305-day production of 30,945 lbs. milk and 
1035 lbs. fat. DVC Black Knight Doodles was second for 
milk with 29,610 lbs. DVC Apollo Ann was second for fat 
with 1017 lbs. 

We sincerely appreciate the fine herdsmanship of Carl 
Oxenrider and his keen interest in the herd. Also, these 
efforts would not have been possible without the care and 
interest by our herdsman, Ed Thompson, and the many 
students who work at the dairy.

The Man in Charge 

by G. T. Robbins 

Have you ever wondered who handles the College's 
finances? Until recently no one person was in charge of Del 
Val's financial affairs and future planning. This situation was 
rectified in November with the appointment of Dr. Wolf as 
President of Planning and Financial Affairs. Dr. Wolf's office 
is located in Lasker Hall, to the left of Dr. Feldstein's office. 

Dr. Wolf is certainly well-qualified for this position. He 
did his graduate work and received his Doctorate of Educa- 
tion from the University of Pennsylvania. He has also received 
his Masters Degree in Business Administration. He spent 
24 years dealing with financial matters in the chemical 
industry. He then turned his energies toward education and 
spent three years teaching at the college level. Following that, 
he became Dean of the Business Division and associate pro- 
fessor at Spring Garden College in Philadelphia. He later spent 
seven years at a public school ^nd has had a book published. 
He last served as Assistant Superintendent of the Central 
Bucks School District from 1977 to November of 1980. 

At the college, Dr. Wolf's job consists of two main 
functions: finances and future plans. Of first priority is the 
financial and business affairs of the college. It is his job to 
take charge of the collecting, spending, and investing of 
college monies and also to budget the college's finances. 
When the business activities of the college are operating well, 
Dr. Wolf is to turn his attention to planning for the future 
and setting the goals of the college. He should direct the 
activities so that all segments of the college are represented 
and fulfilled. To do this, he does not work alone; he is aided 
by the President, Board of Trustees, Staff, and also by the 

We would like to welcome Dr. Wolf to Delaware Valley 
College and wish him much success.

If you still have shopping to do, or if you have not even 
started, here is a summary of some of the better shopping 
areas easily accessible to students. 

Doylestown does offer Christmas shoppers a shopping 
center and specialty shops if you don't mind the limited 
selection. For students interested in a small-town Christmas 
atmosphere, Doylestown is well decorated and offers many 
events for the holiday season. 

*** The Mercer Museum has a special Christmas exhibit. It 
is located on Green Street and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 
Admission for students is $1.00. 

*♦♦ Peddler's Village, located in New Hope, is accessible to 
students via the Bucks County bus service. Schedules for the 
bus are available in the Allman Building at the Residence 
Life Office. Peddler's Village is comprised mainly of specialty 
shops and flea markets. For the holiday season, the Village 
will have special events, including a country band on week- 

*♦♦ The Gallery, located in Philadelphia, is accessible by 
the train which stops at the college. Schedules are available in 
Lasker Hall at the receptionist's desk. The train stops at the 
Reading Terminal on Market Street To get to the Gallery 
from the Reading Terminal, you must head left away from 
City Hall, for about one block. The Gallery has a large 
variety of shops with two major department stores.

Thanks to all of you who gave and made this possible - 
and to all of you who helped. Everyone made the huge 
success possible. Many thanks to the RA's, APO in assisting, 
WDVC and Ram Pages for all their publicity. It is a great 
feeling to be able to give and help someone else in his need. 

The next Bloodmobile will be on April 1, 1981. Let's 
make this an even bigger success!!

DVC talent was shown at the Christmas Dance both on 
the stage and on the dance floor. 

The band, Traveler, had some original Del Val talent The 
lead singer, Craig Edgerton, and the band performed just 
about everything from the Beatles to the Commodores to 
Devo. However, the band was too loud and the acoustics in 
the dining hall were poor. The music, for the most part, was 
good; however, some of the music was not easy to dance to. 
Traveler's version of "Whip It" was so greatly enjoyed that it 
was performed three times. 

Out on the dance floor, people were dancing to the tunes 
and having a great time showing their talent It was also great 
to see everyone dressed up and looking so presentable. 

The dance was a success. It was very well attended; every- 
one was just a little slow getting into the dancing spirit The 
refreshments were delightful and everyone appreciated having 
a free dance with Christmas just around the corner. 


The staff of the Ram Pages wishes everyone a Merry 
Christmas and Happy Sew Year. We would also like to thank 
everyone for the support they have shown us during the past 
semester. Because the college community has been very help- 
ful, we have been able to supply you, the reader, with a 
weekly newspaper that is not only informative but entertain- 
ing. We hope that we may continue this next semester. Once 
again, thank you, and have a safe, enjoyable Holiday Season. 
Next issue: February 6, 1981!

their present sites. 

working on the railroad."

'I've been 

You may think Dr. Weber is 
just another DVC professor. Real- 
istically, his interests go far 
beyond chemistry. For the past 
15-20 years he has been a fanatic 
collector of railroad equipment, 
his main interest being in the 
standard gauge pieces. His collec- 
tion of cars and engines dates 
from World War II, the majority 
being of O-gauge type. 
Dr. Weber keeps up on the train world by being a member 
of the Train Collectors Association. In fact, Dr. Weber has 
served as the Atlantic Division president for three years and 
is currently on the Association's Board of Directors. In addi- 
tion to all of this, Dr. Weber works for Estes Hobbies of 
Norristown, repairing model trains. Through Estes he has 
found a source of a rare standard gauge coiiection that he 
plans to purchase and repair. 

Dr. Weber acquires most of his trains through the mem- 
bers of the collectors' association, traveling to garage sales, 
flea markets, and swap meets. He has purchased ten sets 
from students since he has been teachng here at Del Val. 
He purchased one train set, called "Unique Circus Train", 
from Dr. Stenson several years ago. One special purchase he 
made from a student was in exchange for Dr. Weber paying 
for the student's summer school here. Dr. Weber said, "It was 
well worth it" 

What has Dr. Weber done recently? Several of his trains 
are on display in the Train Collectors Museum in Strasburg, 
Pa. He was also in charge of building the standard gauge 
layout for that museum. 

You may also wonder what happened to the Railroad 
Club here at Del Val. Last year the club became "defunct". 
Most of the club members graduated in the spring of 1979. 
Lack of interest in the fall led to the demise of the club.

The Draft 

by Martha Gehringer 

Michael Barba from the CCCO (Central Committee for 
Conscientious Objectors) in Philadelphia, talked to a very 
small group on December 4th on the status of the draft and 
military life. 

He urged the group, consisting mostly of men, to con- 
sider their position on the draft at the time of registration. 
An explanation of what a conscientious objector is and how 
to go about becoming one was given. There are other ways to 
avoid being drafted. Mr. Barba listed deferments, flunking of 
physicals and resistance as possible ways besides being an 
objector. The laws have changed, however, and no longer will 
being a student or involvement in agriculture get you out of 
the draft There is also little chance women will be drafted. 

The problem of military life is that it is limited and not 
exciting. The military can make glamorous promises to get 
you to join, but 90% of the time they renege on those 

The CCCO is a non-profit organization whose primary 
work is draft and military counseling. This organization 
educates people on what a conscientious objector is. It also

We recently received this letter from the Christian Fellowship. 

The players of the Spirited Spikers (co-ed volleyball 
champions) and the Highjumpers (men's runners up) would 
like to thank you for allowing us to participate in the volley- 
ball playoffs and for giving us excellent fellowship. We thank 
you for giving to us things which are so much fun and for 
times that we can enjoy in fellowship in activities such as 
good, competitive volleyball. We're grateful that we don't 
have to live the boring, uninteresting, isolated lives that many 
people believe Christians do. 

We would like most of all, though, to tell you thanks for 
the love and unity with which our team was able to play. It 
really helped us grow in cooperation, fellowship, support, and 
yes, patience too! Lord, we just pray that our actions 
throughout the playoffs and previous games were glorifying 
to you. 

Thanks again. Lord. Amen.

The future of Lake Archer is uncertain. With help, the 
lake can be improved and utilized by more facets of the 
college community. Because the lake has branches and debris 
lining the bottom, in a few years it will have to be dredged. 

The lake has been gradually decreasing in size and depth 
because of the dirt falling in from the sides. The fish in the 
lake are too big and too many. The carp lay eggs each year 
and pose the major fish problem for the lake. They feed 
heavily on the bottom, stirring up the dirt. This, plus the 
large bacterial content are the major reasons for the water 
being so cloudy. A possible solution is emptying the lake, 
removing all the debris and refilling and restocking with the 
most desirable water and fish. A possible way of doing this is 
by adding Rotenone to the water. Rotenone kills all living 
material (including fish) by asphyxiation. The main advantage 
of this is that the water does not have to be changed. In 
effect, the lake can be dredged, cleaned and the appropriate 
fish stocked. 

This is an outstanding idea for the future and should 
definitely be considered. The lake would be much cleaner 
and more desirable to the college community. Ideas such as 
this are possible strongholds for the future of Lake Archer 
and should be taken into consideration. 

The forefathers of Lake Archer (shown it) picture below) 
put their ideas into practice by creating Lake Archer. There- 
fore, it's our duty as students and members of the DVC 
community to respect and enjoy Lake Archer now and far 
into the future.

are, left to, right: Dr. Julian Prundeanu, Dr. fames Work and 
Ed Miller (kneeling). Looking on are two members of the

Aggie basketball is well on its way; unfortunately, lady 
luck has evaded the men's team in the first four games. 

The Aggies opened the season at Swarthmore on Decem- 
ber 2nd. Freshman guard Jay Nichols led the team as he 
scored 21 points, followed closely by Tom Kehoe and Bill 
Walters with 20 and 19, respectively. Gary Glessher's 26-point 
performance led the way for Swarthmore, as they downed 
the Aggies 92-81. 

On December 4th, the team traveled to Wilkes. In spite of 
Tom Kehoe's 28 points and Bill Walters' 22, the Aggies 
dropped a 92-86 decision to the Colonels. 

Elizabethtown visited DVC on December 6th.The Aggies, 
led by Bill Walters' 17 points, were denied a victory, as the 
Blue Jays took a 71-63 decision In the contest 

The Aggies, looking for win number one, played host to 
the Monarchs of Kings College. Jay Nichols led all scorers 
with 22 points but Jim Shea notched 20 for the Monarchs as 
they defeated the Aggies 79-75. 

The Aggies are 0-4 overall and 0-3 in league action.

Dear Editor, 

Prices are rapidly rising for fuel, due to the shortage of 
energy. President Carter asked the public to keep their ther- 
mostats at 65*F in the winter to save our fuel. Delaware 
Valley College must not know this shortage exists. The heat 
in some of the dorms rises above 80°F sometimes and is 
rarely below 70''F. Many students open their windows in the 
winter just to cool off their rooms. We are paying, through 
our tuition, for heat that is going out the window (literally). 
Maybe the heating systems in the dorms should be re-

When we return to DVC after the holidays, students will 
become concerned with the activities that Social House and 
other groups are sponsoring for the student body. The major 
social event for the semester will be the Gordon Lightfoot 
concert which is tentatively scheduled for the end of March. 
Some other major events will include a Valentine's Day 
dance, a dance at Hi Point sponsored by the Business Club, 
an APO conference on the weekend of February 20, 21, & 
22, a New Year's dance with a dance marathon, and a Greaser 
Dance on March 27th. 

Movies for the semester are Kramer vs. Kramer, All That 
jazz. Coal Miner's Daughter, The In-Laws and California 
Suite. The Sixers trip is on February 4th, and Ed Spielman 
will demonstrate mind over matter in a new presentation. 
Superstars is scheduled for the weekend of April 25th and 
26th, and A-Day will be May 2nd and 3rd with an A-Oay 

These events are only the highlights of the semester's 
activities. Many other activities, such as coffee houses and 
dances, are still in the planning stages.

Many of us are wondering what we are going to do when 
we graduate from DVC. One thing I suggest is that everyone 
should check Graduate School. 

The first person to consult about Graduate School is your 
Advisor. He is a graduate too! He can tell you what Graduate 
School has to offer and can tell you whether he thinks 
Graduate School is worthwhile for you. You should see your 
Advisor as early as your sophomore year so that you can take 
courses in your junior and senior years toward Graduate 

If you are still not convinced about Graduate School, talk 
with some alumni and see how they like it. Also, a good thing 
to do is to hear the various speakers sponsored by the 
different clubs on campus. They have a lot of information 
about different schools and know whom to contact in the 
different schools. 

Once you have decided to go to Graduate School, the 
next place you can go is the Placement Office. The Placement 
Office has a list of schools, useful information and informa- 
tion on various tests to take to get into Graduate School; plus 
some good advice from Mr. McClelland. 

Don't wait until the last minute! Graduate School can be 
another way to get a better job and to have a better future.

EVERYWHERE!!! Berkowitz 
Flood Faas 

by Michael D. McManiman 

The information in this article was collected through per- 
sonal Interviews with Dr. Wolf (Vice President for Planning 
and Financial Affairs), Mr. Tasker (Dean of Students), Mr. 
Caceres (Director of Maintenance), and various other people 
involved with the Berkowitz Hall water pipe breakage over 
the winter recess. The accident occurred on Sunday, Decem- 
ber 28th, 1980 and caused most of the rooms to suffer some 
extent of water damage. The purpose of this article is to 
present the facts, as gathered, without drawing any conclu- 
sions on the events or their effects. 

When Berkowitz Hall, then New Dorm, was erected in 
1970, the contractors installed the plumbing in close prox- 
imity of the cinder block and brick exterior walls. The water 
lines were insulated with W and %" pipe insulation. Al- 
though the pipe straights were insulated, the elbows (pipe 
that changes the direction 90°) for the most part were not. 
This plumbing is housed in the attic. Unfortunately, the attic 
was insulated with a substandard insulation. Regrettably, this 
too was removed from the eaves and dropped onto the ceiling 
of the second floor about three years ago. This act left the 
poorly insulated pipes exposed to the fluctuating tempera- 
tures of our region. 

"According to the National Weather Bureau, this winter, 
thus far, is the fourth coldest this century . . . Recent heating 
fuel prices have hit the $1.00 and up range, causing many to 
turn back the thermostats . . . Colleges turn back the heat and 
turn on the energy conservation." These headlines have been 
seen throughout the country this year and all had an effect 
on the Berkowitz flood. It is suspected that the biggest factor 
(culprit) causing the mishap was the sub-freezing tempera- 
tures of late December. The Delaware Valley was not the only 
area to suffer; the entire Northeast suffered through the 
freezing wrath of mother nature. It was the abnormally low 
temperatures and the location of the pipes to the exterior 
walls along with the exposed elbows, the poor insulation and 
the fact that the building was unoccupied that resulted in the 
breakage. The primary reason for the lowering of the tem- 
perature to 60°, as it was in all dorms, was to conserve on 
heating costs, in compliance with Federal guidelines. 


On Friday, December 26th, the private contractor who 
was rewiring the dorm discovered and repaired a small frac- 
ture in a water line. The break did not cause any damage and 
the contractor continued his work. Two days later a security 
guard, on his early morning rounds, nnade a routine check of 
the boiler room and discovered a water leak coming from an 
undetermined source. The break was immediately reported 
and Mr. Caceres notified. As soon as maintenance arrived, the 
water was shut off and the ruptured pipes located. The 
breaks occurred over the second floor shower and bathroom 
in the hot and cold water lines. The theory is that the sub- 
zero temperature of the night before had frozen the lines and 
the warming temperatures on Sunday thawed the pipes. This 
resulted in several fractures in the insulated straight pipes. 
The time between the breakage, discovery, and the shut off 
was in the neighborhood of three hours, just enough time to 
flood the entire dorm. 


The first people in the rooms were the Lyfords, commu- 
nity coordinators of Berkowitz. With permission from Mr. 
Tasker, they went about the chore of trying to prevent 
further damage to personal property. Later that morning, Mr. 
Tasker arrived to figure out the next strategy while mainten- 
ance removed the residual water. Monday and Tuesday in- 
volved the itemizing of personal property that was damaged. 
Mr. Tasker, Mr. Marron, Mrs. Navarre and Mrs. Erk went 
through each room and made a comprehensive list of those 
items that suffered water damage. At this same time the dorm 
was placed under 24 hours guard protection with all doors 
chained and padlocked. After all rooms were inspected, those 
occupants of the rooms that had suffered the most damage 
were notified. The reason that all occupants were not notified 
was because it was felt that Housekeeping could properly and 
effectively handle the situation. 

Phase Two involved the Housekeeping staff. On Monday, 
Mrs. Keunecke and suff removed all wet furniture, carpets 
and other property and converted the hallways into giant 
clotheslines to begin the job of trying to dry the various 
materials. To assist in this process the temperature In the 
building was turned up to 80° for two days. They then pro- 
ceeded to clean up the rest of the mess and rewaxed the

They came for many different reasons. Some changed 
their major; some came from community colleges; others 
came for still different reasons. Each, however, has the same 
goal - to receive an education at Delaware Valley College. 
They are the transfer students. 

This year 34 students transferred to DVC in January. Of 
these freshman and sophomore students, seven reside on 
campus and the remainder commute. There are 1 8 agriculture 
majors, 9 business majors, 3 biology majors and 2 chemistry 
majors. These students all follow a procedure for admission 
which is nearly identical to the procedure that incoming 
freshmen must follow with the exception that these students 
are able to transfer up to half of their previously earned 
credits required for graduation. 

One transfer student had the following comments about 
DVC: "It's alright There is a better attitude here and the 
people are more easygoing." 

The Ram Pages staff would like to welcome all the new 
students to Delaware Valley College and wish them much 
success in their education here.

One of the biggest complaints, both last semester and this, 
is the price of food - especially in Segal Hall. Commuters and 
non-commuters alike have complained that the prices have 
gone up once again. Mr. David Moyer, the man in charge of 
the food service programs here at DVC, cites inflation as the 
largest contributing factor in the price raises. According to 
Mr. Moyer, the prices have gone up, but they are keeping 
pace with the inflation that all of us experience at the super- 

Another cause of the price increases in Segal Hall is due to 
wastefulness. Packaged condiments are provided in Segal Hall 
for use on hamburgers and food items purchased there. These 
individual packets cost between one-half cent and two and 
one-half cents each. Mr. Moyer believes that people throwing 
out extras and others taking them back to their rooms also 
contributes to rising prices. Due to the addition of DVC West 
campus, Mr. Moyer believes that there may have been a 
decline in the number of commuters. If true, a decline in the 
total sales volume would occur and, as always, the prices 
would go up again. Mr. Moyer emphasizes, however, that no 
large profits are made from Segal Hall and that its purpose Is 
more of a service to the students. 

Many of you seem to be complaining specifically about 
the increase in the price of orange juice. Well, your com- 
plaints have been heard and action has been taken. Presently, 
the Vitality brand orange juice is being served, but soon there 
will be a change. By changing suppliers and brands of orange

NUMBERS: More than 
just music 

by Michael D. McManiman 

Tonight at 9:00 o'clock, in the Rudley Neumann Gym, 
our Social House will present the "Almost, but not quite yet, 
Valentine's Dance." This first-time event will feature the 
Who-inspired group The Numbers and promises to be a mem- 
orable occasion. The Numbers' repertoire is like a musical 
blender set on "pulsating". So varied and versatile is their 
music that everyone should find something to suit his or her 
musical taste buds, and if you dance, put on those dancing 

The group has performed concerts from the shores of 
Virginia to the mountains of New York at various colleges. 
Reports from Susquehanna U. and Muhlenberg indicate some 
good tunes are coming our way tonight. This five-man band 
performs oldies but goodies ("Build Me Up, Buttercup"), 
basic rock and roll ("Won't Get FooleJ Again:" Who), 
current big hits (to be announced), as welt as new wave. 
Musical features include hits by The Cars, Blondie, Hall and 
Oates, Elvis Costello, joe Jaclson, Nick Lowe, Bruce Spring- 
stein and some very exciting originils ("Trigger Finger", 
"Stand Up and Shout"). 

So, whether you want to dance the night away or just sit 
back and enjoy, come on over to mr R.N.G. tonight, shortly 
after nine, and partake of the energizing, danceable rock and 
roll of The Numbers.

Have you been bugged by the high price of books lately? 
Many students have noticed these prices and wonder what 
the cause of this rapid inflation is. 

According to Mr. Wolford, director of the book store, the 
problem is very simple. The publishers send him higher prices 
for books every time he orders them, and he has to pass the 
expense on to (Guess who?) us. 

"Some books, such as the book for Parasitology, have 
gone up ten dollars since the last time they were ordered. 
Books usually go up between two dollars and six dollars 
every time they are ordered," explains Mr. Wolford, "and 
when the professors change the edition of the book, we have 
to try to sell it back to the publishers or to other schools, 
usually at a loss." 

So the book store has the same financial worries as we do 
with rising prices. It should be noted that after visiting a few 
colleges, such as Drexel and Bu^ks County Community 
College who (Drexel) may charge sales tax, that the price of 
books at DVC is the same as, if not cheaper than, those at 
the other schools. 

Everyone is being hit by high prices, and as long as infla- 
tion goes up, prices of books will also.

Dear Editor: 

Delaware Valley College is finally beginning to appreciate 
its sports teams and back them financially, and with the 
spirit they deserve; but now it is time for some of the other 
teams on campus to be recognized and supported. The teams 
t am ulking about are the Livestocl( and Dairy judging teams. 
Many people do not have any real idea what these teams are 
all about, but the members sacrifice just as much or more 
than any of the other teams on campus. Their sacrifice might 
not be as physical as the sports teams, but it can be just as 

The team members of the different judging teams come 
back before school starts in the fall and practice from dawn 
to way after dusk until school surts. When school surts, 
practices are scheduled wherever and whenever time permits. 
The contests we compete in often keep us away from classes 
for several days to a week. The contests themselves leave the 
contestants mentally and physically exhausted. Even though 
the contests are grueling, the satisfaction of competing in 
these contests are very similar to athletic competition. What I 
am trying to say is that being a member of the Judging Team 
is an honor which all Animal and Dairy Husbandry studenu 
should try to achieve. It is an experience that most teachers 
and students envy. It is a practical application of theory. It is 
a one-on-one learning experience that cannot be found in 
traditional academia. But then,, you ask, what is the reason 
for this letter? Well, only a few people realize the importance 
of the Judging Teams, and because of this they are being 
dealt a great injustice. 

The Judging Teams compete against schools much bigger 
than ourselves and that have programs which are much more 
sophisticated. In comparison, it would be like our wrestling 
team competing against Iowa State. Most people would feel 
this would be ludicrous, because of Iowa State's ability to 
recruit and offer scholarships. Well, this is my point exactly. 
The larger schools against which DVC competes in Livestock 
Judging recruit, offer academic credit for judging, and some 
of them even offer scholarships for judging. Some people feel 
that since DVC is so small and does not offer the benefits 
that the larger schools offer, they then figure that the Judging 
Teams should be dropped. This is the most idiotic, senseless, 
ignorant idea that has ever come up. Welt then, what can be 
done to help our Judging Teams? 

Since our Judging Teams are often competitive with the 
major powers, the major overhaul that most people would 
expect is not necessary. What is necessary is receiving college 
credit for Livestock and Dairy Judging. When this is men- 
tioned, most people get very excited and distraught, but all 
that need be done is to institute an advanced judging course 
for the fall semester. The next solution is the most contro- 
versial but the one most needed. It is an enlargement of the 
Judging Teams' budgets. When this is brought up, tempers 
flare and everyone gets upset; but anybody who has had to 
eat at McDonald's for three meals a day, four days in a row, I 
feel would understand my meaning. These are just a few of 
the simple, but complex, solutions needed to help shape up 
the Judging Teams. 

In closing, I would like to appeal to the Administration 
and the Board of Trustees. Please do not disband the judging 
Teams for they are the best learning experience that any 
college student could have. I would like to ask for you to 
rectify the problems and let the Judging Teams grow and 
flourish because DVC has the right ingredients to possibly 
bring home a National Championship. 

Respectfully yours, 

A Member of the 1980 Livestock 
Judging Team (name withheld) 

P.S. The . rotating trophy for the National Champion in 
Livestock Judging is a four-foot high solid silver trophy 
that is worth over $150,000.

An alternative for commuters who eat in Segal Hall every 
day is the meal plan that the school offers. Last semester a 
lunch only meal plan would have cost you $187.50. Mr. 
Moyer believes that this is indeed a savings if you were going 
to eat lunch in the Dining Hall all five days. An advantage of 
this is being able to go back for seconds if you are still 
hungry. Hot lunches are provided; as is a salad for you 
dieters. The disadvantage here is, of course, having to pay all 
of the money at once. Commuters, you can eat lunch or 
dinner at the Dining Hall any day as long as you are willing to 
pay at the door ($2.25 for lunch, $4.00 for dinner). And 
there is always one solution that everyone overlooks - why 
not brown-bag it as an alternative to standing in line and 
paying high prices?!

The beginning of the New Year and Spring semester 
brought with it a few new faculty members - Dr. Tom 
Cordrey, Assistant Professor of Horticulture, and Dr. Mary 
Palumbo, Assistant Professor of Food Industry. The Ram 
Pages welcomes both Dr. Cordrey and Dr. Palumbo to DVC. 

Dr. Cordrey graduated from Delaware Valley College in 
1973 with aS.A. in Horticulture. He continued his education, 
receiving his Masters and Doctorate degrees at Penn State 
University. Before accepting his present position here at 
DVC and replacing Dr. Zander, Dr. Cordrey worked for the 
University of Tennessee, primarily doing research and work- 
ing with the Extension Service. Dr. Cordrey enjoys teaching 
and feels that it has widened his horizons in the Horticulture 
field. White at DVC, Dr. Cordrey would like to continue 
doing research. 

Dr. Mary Palumbo has recently joined the teaching staff 
of the Food Industry Department. Originally from Riverside, 
California, she attended the University of California at Davis 
for her B.S. in Foods Nutrition, the University of Illinois for 
her M.S. in Foods Nutrition and for her Ph.D. in Food 

Interested in the application of biochemistry in Food 
Science, Dr. Palumbo enjoys teaching as it allows her to 
generalize in the field. She last taught at Penn State, Ogontz 

Dr. Palumbo likes Del Vat because it reminds her a tittle 
of Davis. Davis has a "Picnic Day" similar to our A-Day. 
Dr. Palumbo also enjoys the friendly atmosphere here. 
Welcome, Dr. Palumbo.

I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a good 
semester and a belated Healthy and Happy New Year. 

As we embark on a trip through another semester, I would 
like to pass on a few messages on behalf of me and of Student 
Government Traditionally, the second semester is socially 
the most active semester of the year; and that will also be the 
case this year. We have plans in the making for a major 
concert, superstars weekend, the New Year's Eve dance, the 
Greasers' Dance and much more. As well as having all the 
great social events planned, we are also prepared to start work 
on a few major projects that will benefit the students for 
years to come. 

The purpose of this letter is not only to inform you of 
what is going on, but importantly to challenge you to get 
involved. It is very easy for a student to sit in his/her room 
and be a constant complainer, but it takes a hard-working, 
energetic person to get active. 

I would like to challenge you, not ask you, to get in- 
volved. All our meetings (Conduct at 6:30 Monday and 
Social at 6:30 on Tuesday nights) are open to the whole 
student body, for it is you whom we represent So come out 
of hiding and see what we are about Conduct meetings are 
held in the Student Government room in Work Hall, and 
Social House meets In the Segal Hall Basement office. 

Remember, the key words to an organization like ours are 
Action, Communication, and, most importantly, People! 

Thank you, 
Jim Trainer 
Student Government President

When Housekeeping completed their job, Maintenance re- 
turned and within one week of the break had most areas back 
to normal. By January 16th all systems were go and the dorm 
was ready for occupancy. The cooperation and performance 
of all departments are to be commended and credited with 
the prevention of further structural an.i personal damages. 

Damage and Insurance: 

The damage to the building was mi'iimat and estimated at 
$1,000. This figure does not include the labor costs necessary 
for the cleanup. Unfortunately, thi-; c jst had to be absorbed 
by the college because the building was not covered for water 
damage at the time of the mishap, ,'lt is now covered.) All 
personal property Is not covered by i o iege Insurance and the 
college will not take responsibility f ;< any personal items lost 
ladies who suffered text book losses, the college will lend out 
those books for this semester. 


This unfortunate incident has caused the college to 
realize that there is an insulation problem on campus. Berko- 
wltz Hall was not the only dorm to be affected by water line 
breakages. Work, Wolfson and West all had the same fate as 
Berkowitz, on a much smaller scale, but with no student 
property being damaged. All buildings are now being in- 
spected and the situations are being improved where neces- 
sary. The heating systems in the buildings are also being 
revamped so that temperatures can be more easily regulated. 
All in all, this has been a learning experience. 


It should be noted that had the dorm been occupied, the 
breakage probably would not have occurred because of the 
regular usige of water. The theory behind this is that flowing 
water takes a longer period of time to freeze. Delaware State 
College (Dover, Delaware) also had water pipe breakages in 
five of its buildings over the winter recess. All concerned 
parties are invited to see Mr. Tasker for any particular

The Roommate Game 

You've heard of the Dating Game, the Newlywed Game; 
well, now there's the Roommate Game. Just what is the 
Roommate Game? Well, it's a way to spend Saturday, Feb- 
ruary 28th. Starting at 7:30 p.m. in the cafeteria, you and 
your roommate can vie for cash prizes. Learn all about your 
roommate and others while answering questions such as — 
How many pairs of underwear does your roommate own? 
and, How many times a month does your roommate change 
his/her sheets? 

Sign ups will be taken February 3, 4, 10 and 11 in the 
cafeteria. Stay tuned for more details. 


About 50 students attended the Sophomore-sponsored 
ski trip toCamelback on January 31, 1981. The group arrived 
at Camelback and was on the slopes by 9:00 a.m. The morn- 
ing started very cold but it turned out to be a beautiful sunny 
day. Crowded conditions caused long lift lines. Everyone had 
a spectacular day and the resulting scrapes and bruises 
acknowledge it 

Watch for signs and bulletins of "White Water Rafting" 
which will also be sponsored by the Sophomore Qass. It will 
be another spectacular you won't want to miss!

In my first International Column in the Fall of 1980, I 
reported on the hostage dilemna. For the first issue of the 
second semester, I am overjoyed to be writing on the conclu- 
sion of the hostage ordeal. 

Many people say Hollywood would have rejected it if it 
were a movie script because of the way all of the events 
worked out, especially the last few chapters of our comrades' 
journey to safety. 

For 444 days (14!4 months) United States citizens hoped, 
prayed, and feared for the hostages' well being and expedient 
and safe return. The hosuges' families and friends felt as if 
they, too, were hostages. 

Do you remember the man the terrorists blindfolded? His 
name is William Belk. Mrs. Belk in Columbia, S.C., was one 
who suffered as soon as she had seen her husband until his 
release on the 20th of January. 

Several items became symbolic of the hostages' plight: 
the yellow ribbons worn by Kathryn Koob and Elizabeth 
Ann Swift, and the Flame and flags in Hermitage, Pa. 
Residents mounted one flag for each day the hostages were 
held in captivity. v^ 

A student poll on the hostage issue was taken here at Del 
Val. I would like to thank those who participated in the poll 
for their cooperation. 

Q1. Do you think the U.S. should fulfill its commitment 
to Iran on the agreement that freed the hostages? 
20 believed the U.S. should fulfill our end of the 
bargain, while 16 felt we should not. 

Q2. How do you feel the hostages were treated from what 
you have heard? 
2 said they were treated good. 
9 felt they were treated fairly. 

14 felt they were treated badly. 

15 felt they were treated inhumanely. 

03. Now that the hostages are free in the U.S., do you feel 
military action should be taken now, or in the future 
if Iran should cause any further problems to the U.S.? 
Of those polled, 70% said no military action should be 
taken at this time. Of the remaining 30%, one person 
said economic sanctions should be continued. One 
pulled the familiar phrase, "an eye for an eye". Others 

said, "Bomb the out of them." Some could not 

say what should be done. 

On Ronald Wilson Reagan's Inauguration Day, the host- 
ages were released eleven minutes after he became the 40th 
President of the USA. This was Iran's final insult to then 
President Carter to release the hostages after he stepped down 
from the helm of 9iUf country. 

Now the hostages are free but their memories of torment 
and torture will stay with them forever. The truth of how 
they were really treated is being slowly revealed. There is one 
point that sticks in the minds of the hostages over all the 
others - that t$ of the eight men who were killed in the 
attempted rescue mission. They say, "Now we are being 
honored as heroes, but the real heroes were those who died 
during the aborted rescue."

So You're Looking for a Farm job? 

Around this time each year many agriculture students 
start to think about summer jobs for the (hopefully) quickly 
approaching spring break. Some may even wander up to the 
bulletin board outside the Placement Office to follow the 
rows of neatly typed index cards that could lead the way to 
the next year's livelihood. One typical card reads, "Farm 
work — break your back from dawn to dusk — $3/hour." The 
exact wording of that ad might be exaggerated, but its impli- 
cation is not. The fact is that the pay for most part-time 
agricultural jobs is lousy. Many agriculture students find that 
they simply cannot afford to take a job in their major and 
survive financially through college. The problem is illustrated 
further by looking at our buddy the business major, who 
took an assembly line job at a local factory. It was a boring 
job with tough hours, but after settling his tuition he made a 
subsuntial down payment on a new pickup truck. 

Looking for the source of the problem, I talked with 
many students about their summer jobs. I also talked with 
some local employers, including a dairy farmer, landscapers, 
livestock farmers and a florist. But the problem extends far 
beyond DVC and the local employers. 

A look at USDA records shows that hired farm worker 
wages had the smallest increase of all farm operating expenses 
in the past decade. Most agriculture economists simply do not 
recognize that farm labor is worth any more than $3 or $4 an 
hour. In contrast, Mr. lacocca in Detroit testifies that his 
industry's labor cost has already passed the $15/hour mark. 

Closer to home, many independent farm operators say 
that their tight profit margins do not allow them to pay 
higher wages. One dairy farmer even went through the exten- 
sive calculations to show that his hired help earned more 
than he. I still had doubts. I asked them if attracting better 
qualified help through higher wages might help boost their 
profits. They hadn't thought about it. 

The responses from larger businesses, especially in the 
O.H. area, were even more frustrating. It seemed that these 
businesses should have more flexibility in their wage struc- 
ture. My first question was about the determination of a 
prospective employee's wages. At best, the answers were 
vague. On the subject of salary increases, one employer 
sounded generous in allowing a 25c to 50c increase to a 
student who returns for a second summer. While I tried to 
calculate raise percentage in my head, I commented on the 
$1,000 tuition increase at DVC last year. "I'm sorry," re- 
turned in a voice that now reflected some real thought. I 
knew that he understood the point of my questions. 

It is not fair to imply that employers are thoughtless 
entrepreneurs trying to retire on profits realized through a 
student's employment. They do, however, recognize the 
continuous source of enthusiastic, low-cost labor available to 
them. They are familiar with the waves of students that come 
and go like the tide each summer. It is not hard to imagine 
why these employers have long ago given up trying to evalu- 
ate individual talent in prospective part-time employees. If 
I've learned anything through all of these informal interviews, 
it is that a student must force his way into the attention of 
the employer. A student must make himself stand out and 
take an active role in discussing the facets of the job, includ- 
ing wages. Otherwise, you can only merit the routine job 
with routine pay. 

From the start, resolve to prove yourself to be more 
valuable to the boss. Employers will be impressed by this 
approach because, honestly, they don't see very much of it. 
After all, the most you have at stake is another visit up to the 
rows of typed index cards. 


We, the Class of '82 Officers, hope that you enjoyed the 
Junior Dinner Dance; yet we regret your possible dissatisfac- 
tion with the dance music. We feel that you deserve an ex- 
planation as to what happened with the music. 

Originally, it was decided that employing the comedy 
team and a disc jockey would be a well-received novelty. 
Edmonds and Curley, the comedy team, performed as 
scheduled and we hope ycHj found them as entertaining as we 
did. Sound Tech, the disc jockies, unfortunately did not play 
music the way we planned them to. As many of you know, 
we asked for requests of your favorite tunes at the time of 
ticket sales. These requests were compiled and read to Sound 
Tech personnel over the phone prior to the dance to insure 
that the D.J. would have the desired music on hand. (The 
phone system was used because we wanted to accept requests 
up until the latest possible time.) The same list of requests 
was presented to the D.J. who arrived at Highpoint the night 
of the dance. This D.J. had no previous knowledge of our 
requests; Sound Tech personnel had failed to deliver our 
message to him. 

We were very disappointed, not to mention rather furious 
with Sound Tech. This dissatisfaction has been expressed 
directly to Sound Tech. From hereon out we guarantee that 
if we have much of a say in the matter, you won't see Sound 
Tech again at a DVC function. And in the future, we will be 
much more careful and precise in our programming and 
hopefully a lack of communication like this will not occur 

Sincerely apologetic, 

Karen Kerner, Social House Rep 
Barb Meyer, Secretary 
and all the Class of '82 Officers 

P.S. (To younger classes: Please take note of this difficulty 
which we encountered so you may avoid such a 
problem in your programming.) 


Janet Salter '81, Kathleen Sucharski '81 and Karen 
Kerner '82 will represent Delaware Valley College In Glamour 
Magazine's 1981 Top Ten College Women Competition. They 
will compete with other young women from colleges and 
universities throughout the country in Glamour's search for 
ten outstanding students. A panel of Glamour editors will 
select the winners on the basis of their achievements in 
academic studies and/or their involvement in personal, 
campus, or community activities. 

The 1981 Top Ten College Women will be featured in 
Glamour's August College Issue. During May, June or July, 
the ten winners will be invited to New York to meet the 
Glamour staff and will receive a $500 cash prize. 

For a special treat!

If you're planning a trip to New Hope, Pa., for a day of 
sightseeing, or to uke in a play, and want a good meal to top 
off the day, then I recommend the Lambertville House. It is 
located in historical Lambertville, N.J., which is just a short 
walk across the bridge from New Hope. 

The Lambertville House was originally known as the Stage 
House and for a very good reason. It has been a place for 
weary travelers to get some rest and enjoy a ^od meal since 
1812. Many distinguished guests have frequented the Lam- 
bertville House from Andrew Jackson, 17th President of the 
United States, and Ulysses S. Grant, as well as other 
prominent dignitaries. 

The Lambertville House has three dining rooms, each 
setting Its own mood for a most pleasant evening. The rooms 
are decorated with early American antiques and art A host of 
aromas from the kitchen will tease your taste buds while you 
wait for your meal to be served. 

You can choose your meal from their menu or the special 
of the day. Each meal Includes a choice of vegetables, a 
potato (prepared a variety of ways), and a salad. I recom- 
mend you try the House dressing; it has a unique flavor you 
will find nowhere else. With your meal a complimentary 
basket of hot bread, that begs to be buttered, is served. I 
dined on the Sauteed Tenderloin Tips ($7.95), which come 
smothered in mushroom gravy. It was delicious. Gall had the 
Stuffed Breast of Chicken ($7.25), and found it usty. Some 
other dishes to choose from are Chicken Pot Pie ($8.50), 
Fresh Roasted Turkey ($7.25), Baked Scallops ($9.95), Filet 
of Flounder ($8.25), Hunters' Style Beef ($1 1.95), and many 
more. They also serve a host of appetizers, such as Clanw on 
the Half Shell ($2.95), Stuffed Mushrooms ($3.75), and 
Fresh Fruit ($2.95). I found the price of most of the meals 
to be moderately reasonable; the ^pretlzers were a bit expen- 
sive, but I'm sure they are well worth their price. 

I would just like to comment on the service. We were 
greeted warmly at the door by ou< ► jstess, and felt right at 
hone. The service by our waitress -vas prompt and friendly. 

Reservations are not required, but recommended. Some 
nights offer entertainment, so you should call ahead to see 
which nights they do have it. 

To get to the Lambertville Hou^ from DVC, Uke 202 
North to Route 1 79. Stay on 1 79 through New Hope, and go 
straight across the bridge into Lambertville. You are now on 
Bridge Street, and the Lambertville House is about two 
blocks from the bridge. It is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednes- 
day and Thursday from 5-9 P.M., Friday and Saturday 5-1 1 
P.M., Sunday 12-8 P.M. The phone number is 609-397-0202. 

Editors' Note: Let us know what you think of Mike's reviews. 
What did you think of the food and service?

The snow white sheets which the Mary Macintosh Linen 
Service provides to students partaking of their service may 
become a thing of the past at the end of this year. 

The linen service which the college employs at one time 
was mandatory and at that time enjoyed a large business. 
However, once the college put into use the laundromat, the 
business dropped substantially. Last year the business was so 
low that it almost wasn't profitable for the company to ser- 
vice the college. This year only about 100 students get their 
sheets from Mary Macintosh and about 80% of those are 
freshmen who usually stop using these sheets the following 

At the end of this year the college will discuss the possi- 
bility of stopping the linen service. If this happens, everyone 
will simply have to bring his or her own sheets or sleep on 
the bare mattress. 

DAY 471 - THE DVC 

by Joanne Lubanski 

Yes, Juniors are being held hostage by their courses until 
May 1982. We suffer the supreme torture of studying, taking 
tests and being isolated from the world. Parents are worried 
if the students are able to withstand this situation and pass 
through it with flying colors. Loved ones wait by the phone 
in anticipation of an expected call. And through it all these 
brave young men and women keep their spirits high, and 
wallets empty. 

Seriously, folks, being a Junior (or other underclassman) 
is tough. The road is often rocky and we don't always see the 
pot of gold at the end of the rainbow (graduation and the 
Senior trip). 

But, when will this crisis end? Haven't we had enough? 
Well, at least we get summers off, something the real hostages 
didn't get 


COMES AGGIES, 51 - 50 

by Lorri Get us 

Saturday night the game of the Lady Aggies had specta- 
tors watching with their hearts in their throats. 

Up until the last S minutes of the game the women's bas- 
ketball team led the entire time. Marcia Werner paced the 
game with 19 points, while Patti Rissinger scored 15 points 
and Brenda Wolf 10 points. The Aggies were playing an 
aggressive, fast-paced game — one of their better home games 
of the season. 

Then Muhlenberg caught up with 44 points. The game 
became a match of ping-pong as the teams traded off foul 
shots. Up until the last 10 seconds the Aggies came within 
one basket of regaining their lead. Unfortunately, the Aggies 
failed to connect the shots they needed to overpower

On January 24th, the Eagles lost their first Super Bowl 
appearance to the Oakland Raiders. It was a very disappoint- 
ing performance by the NFC champs. 

The playoffs set up the Eagles' first visit to the Super 
Bowl and a dream come true for the many Eagles fans. The 
game was played in the Super Dome, a roofed stadium that 
had the game time temperature at 72°, a far cry from some of 
the arctic temperatures the two Super Bowl contestants had 
played in during their previous playoff games. 

The game began with the Eagles receiving the kick and 
after three downs punting to Oakland. Oakland went down 
the field and scored; this set the tempo for the game in 
Oakland's favor and was never switched. Philadelphia got the 
ball back and Jaworski threw his first of three receptions. 
Oakland marched, then punted. The Eagles got the ball back 
and did likewise. All during this time, the Eagles seemed very 
timid and nervous. Oakland regained the ball and Jim 
Plunkett, the Raiders' quarterback, flipped running back 
Kenny King a 19-yard pass which ended up being an 80-yard 
touchdown in which no one touched King. 

Now the Raiders are up (14-0) in the first quarter and the 
Eagles are looking as bewildered as ever. They got a field goal 
before halftime, but came out in the second half only to be 
greeted by another Oakland touchdown. This was Plunkctt's 
third passing touchdown and second to Branch, and pretty 
well predicted the outcome of the game. As it turned out, the 
Eagles got their only touchdown early in the fourth. The 
Raiders earned a pair of field goals by Chris Barr also in the 
fourth. All totaled, the Raiders had an impressive 27-10 win 
for their second Super Bowl title in three attempts. 

The Raiders played a very good game. The most dominat- 
ing factor the Raiders did was control the line of scrimmage 
on offense and defense. They did this and literally "beat" the 
Eagles offensive and defensive lines. John Matuzak, the 
Raiders' defensive tackle, gave the Eagles' offensive line a 
lesson in hand-to-hand combat and was pestering Jaworski on 
nearly every passing play. On the other hand, Oakland's 
offensive line gave Plunkett all the time in the world. 

All in all, the game wasn't the most exciting of Super 
Bowls, but it brought a lot of excitement to this Pennsylvania 
school and the area, the same kind of excitement we can 
expect of the Eagles for years to come.

BLOCK AND BRIDLE - Club meeting Wednesday, February

by Mel Balliet 

The Aggies, although losing a pre-holiday meet to the 
Colonels of Wilkes, have won three straight matches, includ- 
ing a win over highly ranked Lycoming, on the road to their 
record of 8-1. 

On January 21st, the University of Scranton Royals 
visited DVC. The Aggies surted out very slow as they fell 
behind 12-0, but with five pins, a decision, and a forfeit, won 
6 of the last 7 bouts and >M>n the match 36-1 5. 

The pre-season poll had Lycoming ranked fifteenth, but 
the Aggies, who were ranked twentieth, came back to DVC 
with a big win. Tom Trumbauer (118) started the Aggies on 
their way with a 14-1 superior decision over Mike Mason. 
Following losses at the 126 and 134 weight classes, Troy 
Marshall (142) took a 4-2 decision from Rick Umstead. Mark 
Sands then pinned Tim Brown in 3:30 to put the Aggies on 
top to suy. /^though the Aggies lost the 158-pound weight 
class, Carl Nebhut (167) drew with George Umstead (7-7). 
Paul Pearson and Warren Robertson pinned as Jeff Bartholo- 
mew took a 17-14 decision to lock up the victory. 

The Aggies returned to the home mats on January 28th to 
take on Susquehanna. Tom Trumbauer's 7-5 decision and 
Tony Novak's pin in 56 seconds gave the Aggies a lead they 
would never lose. Mark Sands (ISO), Paul Pearson (190) 
pinned and Bruce Stajnarjh drew to give the Aggies a nearly 
insurmountable lead. Warren Robertson and Jeff Bartholo- 
mew both pinned to make the final score DVC 35, Susque- 
hanna 1 2. 

Exciting, but lulling short 

Although the Aggies possess a 3-1 4 record, they are show- 
ing improvement On January 9 and 10 the Aggies partici- 
pated in a tournament at Allentown College, where they lost 
to both Muhlenberg and host Allentown. 

Following a loss to Ursinus, the Aggies returned home for 
a thrilling triple overtime game against Albright. Four Aggies 
hit double figures, but it wasn't enough as the Lions won 
89-84. The Aggies ended their five-game skid on January 17, 
as they defeated Spring Garden (82-65). They made it two in 
a row as they got revenge by defeating Muhlenberg, 97-70. 

DVC then started a four-game road trip. This road trip 
was disastrous as the Aggies lost to Susquehanna, Juniau, 
Moravian and Scranton. The Aggies returned home on Janu- 
ary 31, but the result was the same - they lost to Wilkes 

The Aggies do have some bright spots in this season, in- 
cluding Bill Walters and Tom Kehoe who are one and two in 
scoring in the MAC Northern Division. Walters is also leading 
the division in field goal percentage and is second in rebound- 
ing, while Kehoe is third in free throw percentage and tenth 
in field goal percentage. 


Just before the Christmas break, the men's intramural 
hockey season was terminated with EMO defeating Vels 
Vandals 3-2. The Vandals went into that game with a perfect 
record, and the highest scoring offense in the league. EMO 
had an embarrassing loss to the Vandals during the regular 
season, but beat them in the most important game of all. 
EMO had to defeat the Anarcticans to advance to the finals. 
Anarctica was one of the top defensive teams, finishing 
second in the league in goals against them. The Vandals 
scored a victory over the Squealers to advance against EMO. 
Congratulations to EMO for their victory. 

The Girls Hockey season is now underway. Eight teams 
will battle it out for the top four positions for a playoff 
berth. Many feel that this year may be highlighted once 
again with a rematch of the Goal Getters and Margarita's 
Babes (last year they were the Dirtballs). The Dirtballs, under 
Marge Gay, were the defending champions of last year.

Although Florida oranges were frozen this year they can 
still be squeezed for orange juice. The only problem is the 
quantity of juice will be down, thus forcing the price of 
orange juice up. This could make it just a breakfast drink 
once again.

Dear Editor: - 

In response to the article on commuter parkmg in which 
It was suggested that on-campus students park at the far end 
of the parking lot, I have a few comments. First of all, our 
cars are parked here overnight. It makes me feel more secure 
if my car is as close to Security as possible during the night. 
Secondly, if our parking lot were one-quarter mile long, we 
wouldn't have a parking problem.

Dear Editor — 

This letter is in reference to Wednesday, February 4th. A 
group of about fifteen of us guys had just started to play 
hockey in the small gym. In ten minutes, a group of cheer- 
leaders came in and told us w« would have to leave because 
they had to practice that very minute. (It was about 
7:00 p.m. and the basketball game started at 9:00!) 

Now, many of us had patiently waited for the wrestling 
team to finish practice. I thought that it was very rude of the 
cheerleaders to do this to us. I can understand if they were 
learning a new cheer or something (because they keep re- 
peating the same idiotic cheers out on the court). We would 
have been more than happy to let you have the gym in about 
fifteen minutes. What was your hurry? How about showing 
some consideration next time! 

Some Hockey Players 

Dear Editor, 

I would like to bring up a subject members of the male 
community on campus seem to know nothing about - con- 
sideration of their female counterpart. This is especially 
shown in sports. Men think they are stronger and faster than 
women and, therefore, they may use the facilities here at 
college whenever they wish. It matters not to them if some 
women are presently using the facilities or not. They will just 
barge In on the women and expect the women to vacate the 
premises so that they may pretend to be jocks. 

The females do not think they are equal to the males, nor 
do they mind vacating facilities so the men may build their 
egos by playing jock, but the lack of consideration is appall- 
ing. In the normal course of the day this lack of considera- 
tion is not too extreme, but in a narrowed environment such 
as sports it becomes greatly more noticeable. 

A change in this area would be greatly appreciated, guys. 
Women enjoy sports too! 

A Concerned Senior 

Editors' Note: Here again, lilte the parking lot, is a contro- 
versial issue. A t one time hours were set aside for women and 
it did not work out, whatever the reason. Your point is well 
taken and we ask everyone who uses the facilities to show 
consideration for all.

On Thursday, February 5th, the Junior class sponsored a 
trip to the Atlantic City casinos. Some people will never be 
the same. 

After a slight delay, the two buses arrived at the casinos at 
around 8 o'clock. One bus went to the Boardwalk Regency 
and the other went to the Britton. I was really taken (in more 
ways than one) by the casinos. Some were better than others. 
The best one I went to was Bally's Park Place. They had 
magnificent escalators with waterfalls running along the side 
of them. But the best casino that I heard of in Atlantic Qty 
was the Golden Nugget with a "Twenties" atmosphere and 
everything in red and gold. 

In the casinos, there were slot machines, black jack tables, 
roulette tables and craps tables. Each of us got twelve dollars 
worth of quarters. Most of the quarters were spent on the 
slot machines. (What a sieve!) After losing at the slot 
machines, most people either went to the tables or visited the 
other casinos or enjoyed each other's company. 

It was really a change of pace and one of the best 
evenings many people have had in a long time. Of course, not 
everyone won money, but everyone had fun while they were 

As for some people being changed, well, before I went to 
the casinos I did not think too much of gambling. Now, after 
seeing the beautiful casinos and having fun both winning 
and losing money, I'm hooked! And so are many of the 
others who went!

Historical Bucks County has many points of interest, and 
each is a new experience. Whether you enjoy shopping, 
antique hunting, dining out, history Hunting, or tasting wine, 
you can do all that right in this area. 

The Bucks County Vineyard and Winery is located on 65 
acres, not too far from here. The Winery has a lot to offer 
you, including winery tours, wine usting, wine museum, and 
a gift shop. The admission charge is $ 1 .00, which includes the 
guided tour through the cellar, museum visit, and a souvenir 
wine glass that is used to sample the wines. 

The tour of the Winery is conducted by Arthur Ceroid, 
the owner of the Bucks County Vineyards. His tour starts in 
the wine cellars where the grapes are processed and the wine 
is put into large containers and wooden casts, so the final 
stages of the wine-making can be completed. While he is 
showing you the cellar, he gives a 30-minute lecture on the 
fine art of wine-making, and a little history as well. A couple 
of interesting facts of wine-making are brought out, such as 
the difference between making red and white wine. At the 
end of the tour you are invited to taste some of the wines 

that the winery produces. It's a Pennsylvania state law that 
you be 21 years old to taste or buy wine, but even if you 
can't taste it, it's a really good tour. 

Another unique feature of the Bucks County Winery is 
its museum. It contains different kinds of antique wine 
containers and glasses. You'll learn about all kinds of grapes 
used in the wine-making process, and how to make cham- 
pagne too. The museum also features costumes that actors 
such as Mary Martin (Peter Pan), Al Pacino, Katherine 
Hepburn, and many others had worn on Broadway. 

There is a gift shop where you can buy the wines you 
tasted, and some glassware is also available. If you are going 
to buy some wine, I recommend you start with one bottle; 
if you like it, go back and buy another. 

The Bucks County Vineyards and Winery is located on 
Route 202 South between Peddler's Village and New Hope. 
Their hours are Monday through Friday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 
p.m.; Saturday and holidays, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; and 
Sunday, noon to 6:00 p.m. 



From the Ram Pages desk 

We have received recently several letters expressing many 
concerns. Unfortunately, most of these are unsigned, and as 
some of you know our policy is NO NAME, NO PRINT. We 
will withhold names, or use an alias upon request. If your 
letter has not appeared in the paper, it is probably for this 
reason. We want to near from you but must know who we are

thoughts on paper, why not your name?

Twelve Horticulture Club members, along with Dr. and 
Mrs. Vincent, stayed over at the Hershey Lodge and Conven- 
tion Center from February 3rd to 5th for the 1 981 Fruit and 
Vegeuble Conference. Also, Horticulture staff members Mr. 
Wise, Mr. Frecon, Dr. Cordrey and some other students were 
able to attend for a day. 

The convention consisted of selected agricultural people 
speaking on a variety of horticultural topics, such as, 
"Economics of Fruit Growing," "Pest Control," "Land Use 
and Mechanical Harvesting," and "Small Fruit Culture." Also 
there were panel discussions. The panels were made up of 
agricultural researchers, growers and professors. They briefly 
told us their horticultural background and answered ques- 
tions from the audience. 

Furthermore, there was a large exhibit for salespeople 
selling various products, such as chemicals, farm machinery, 
irrigation systems, nursery stock and seeds. In addition to 
educating us, the convention offered entertainment too. A 
banquet, color television sets in our rooms, an indoor heated 
swimming pool, whirlpool, sauna, pool tables and pinball 
machines added even more enjoyment to this well-remem- 
bered trip.

Philadelphia is accessible to students by using the train. 
Train schedules are available in Lasker Hall from the recep- 
tionist. The train terminates at Market Street in Philadelphia. 

The Philadelphia Museum of Art is located on the Ben- 
jamin Franklin Parkway at 26th Street. To get to the Museum 
from the Reading Terminal, walk west on Market Street to 
City Hall. At City Hall go into the courtyard and to the next 
exit on the right. This will pass by the cornerstone of the 
building and put you on the Parkway. Follow the Parkway 
until you see the Museum on the right. 

Admissions is located on the first floor. Students are 
admitted for a dollar if they show school I.D. Maps are avail- 
able which show all the present exhibits of the Museum. 

Francine and I spent about four hours in the Museum 
looking at things for ourselves. Tours are available from 
10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Some of the exhibits that we found 
interesting included the Kienbusch Collection of Arms and 
Armor, Medieval European Art and European Art(1400A.D. 
to 1700 A.D.j. The Museum also has special exhibitions 
which are advertised in the Philadelphia papers and on the 
local news. There is a Caf^ and a Museum Shop located on 
ground floor for food and souvenirs. The Museum is open 
every day, except Monday and Tuesday, from 10:00 a.m. to 
5:00 p.m. We recommend it for anyone trying to escape 
DVC for a day. 

Dr. Elson 

by Gerald T. Robbins 

We're sure that you are all wondering what has happened 
to Dr. Elson, Professor of Chemistry, after his heart attack 
last semester. Thanks to Mark Huston, who administered 
cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Dr. Elson is quite alive and 
alnost as healthy as ever. Although Dr. Elson is still under 
medical supervision, he is back at DVC. At the present time. 
Dr. Elson is primarily involved with the Chemistry review 
sessions and seminars. 

Dr. Elson, who received his degree from Rutgers Univer- 
sity and taught at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, came to 
Delaware Valley College in 1946. He has seen this institution 
change from the National Farm School to a Junior College to 
the National Agricultural College to the Delaware Valley 
College that we know. Even though Dr. Elson has been at 
DVC for many years, he plans to continue here for a while 
and views his retirement as taking place sometime in the 

Dr. Elson would like to express his thanks to everyone for 
their cards and their concern: Mark Huston, Mrs. Joanne 
Fisher, APO, Chemistry Club, and everyone else. 

Welcome back. Dr. Elson.

Probably the least recognized DVC organizations are Its 
interscholastic agricultural judging teams. Their members' 
strong commitment earns our college a respectable standing 
among the nation's leading agricultural schools. The Ram 
Pages staff recognizes and salutes the efforts of all three 
judging teams and pledges support in the upcoming season. 

The 1981-82 Livestock judging team is organizing right 
now. The team will feature Jeff Armstrong, Mary Blascovich, 
Sue Delong, Bernie Dowd, and Tim Schuler. All are animal 
husbandry seniors. Any other prospective members should 
see Mr. Gilbert. 

Best of Luck for the upcoming season!

It Could Have Been You! 


by Warren D. Lewis 

With Ronald Reagan in office, the rest of the world, 
and especially the Soviet Union, is being careful in its 
movements in and around Poland. Since last autumn Poland 
has been plagued by massive union and wildcat strikes, 
bringing that country's economy to a grinding halt. Union 
leader Lech Walesa has been the driving force over solidarity 
in the country. Currently Walesa has been meeting with 
Communist officials in Warsaw, Poland, to try to come to as 
many workable agreements as possible to get the workers 
what they want and get the country's wheels, turning again. 

One significant action that Walesa and Communist leaders 
will have to deal with is a sit-in staged by 5,000 of the 9,000 
students at the University of Lodz. They occupied several of 
their academic buildings and settled in for a siege of undeter- 
mined length. In 1968, former students at the University 
were involved in the battlefield of anti-Soviet demonstrations. 
This time they are being more cautious. "Some of their 

demands are fewer cmjrses on Marxism, less emphasis on 
Russian-language instruction, and an end to restrictions on 
foreign travel." 

Living in a free country with no restrictions, we forget 
that in most of the world students are restricted as to what 
they are allowed to learn and where they are allowed to 
travel. Just for a moment, picture yourself in the place of 
one of those students. He/She may be your age, in your year 
of study. He/She may even play the same position in the 
same sport you do or hold the same position in a similar kind 
of club as you are in now. Now picture yourself in the 
University of Lodz or any other college or university re- 
stricted by government. Now you are staging a sit-in for the 
things you believe in, remembering how a similar action 
turned into a violent siege by that government and what 
happened to those students. How would you feel right now 
sitting, sleeping, waiting in one of the academic buildings? 
ftow you come back to the U.S. Aren't you glad you're here?

Invariably, the subject of getting started in my intended 
profession always turns up at dinner with my future father-in- 
law, and back home I hear enough bleak economic forecasts 
to discourage any young person with plans for the future. 
But lately, I sense a change of political circumstances, and I 
feel confident in my optimism. While deregulation and free 
enterprise seem to be the themes of most prevailing economic 
policies, the attitude regarding young farmers is just the 
opposite. The Reagan administration is making it clear that 
agricultural strength will be a critical factor in the nation's 
future political standing as well as in its economic balance. 
The President seems to regard agriculture with a respect that 
surprises even the veteran farmers. Consequently, support for 
young farmers is an issue which is virtually uncontested. 
That's great; but why this sudden support? 

The 1980 census provides some clues for the change in 
attitude. First, the survey reveals that the average investment 
per farm worker is now over $500,000. This is substantially 
more than any other industry. While this fact is not greatly 
significant by itself, it does show the stability and potential 
financial leverage that even a small group of farmers could 
have. Meanwhile, the census verifies that the number of 
farmers continues to drop. 

No one would be surprised if I said these two facts are 
probably related. The median age for farmers is getting 
higher, since fewer young farmers are able to get started in 
an industry that requires a half-million dollar initial invest- 
ment A separate government study recently published 
reveals that no substantial production advantage will be 
realized by further increasing farm sizes. If the trend con- 
tinues, however, a major part of our food supply will be 
controlled by a relative handful of people. The political 
solution is simple: support young farmers through low-cost 
guaranteed loans. The sute of Nebraska, for example, has 
implemented several programs which can finance up to 100% 
of a new farming operation with lenient repayment terms. 
Other states, and the Federal Department of Agriculture 
(FHA) will probably follow suit. Some of us may be lucky 
enough to take advantage of the political situation in the 
next few years as we try to get established in agriculture. It 
would be a mistake, however, to sit back and wait for these 
programs to be implemented. The atmosphere is right, so let 
our lawmakers know that there is a real need and support for 
this issue. After all, it's for our own future.

Water Shortage - Those two words have become a 
common item in the news as it affects most of the country. 
Del Val is lucky, since we don't have to face the possibility 
Jof a water shortage yet In fact, Berkowitz had a surplus 
/water problem over Christmas break - but that is another 
story. The campus does have its own well and is not involved 
in the reservoir situation. Generally In this area, according to 
Mr. Caceras, the water table is still okay. The college has had 
no problem filling the 75,000-gallon water tank and the 
pumps are all in good condition. This doesn't mean, however, 
that conservation of water on campus can be ignored. 

In this area, non-essential water use has been banned by 
the Governor. This includes watering of lawns, washing 
streets, sidewalks and cars (except In public car washes), and 
use of fire hydrants (except for fighting fires). On campus, 
simple water conservation practices include shorter showers, 
dirtier cars, shutting off faucets and showers completely, not 
letting the faucet run while brushing teeth and any other 
habit in which water is just running down the drain. 

These are some ways \^ater can be saved. Another means 
of conserving water is by opening your mouth and letting 
others know when they are wasting water. H2O so often is 
taken for granted, but just like O.j. and peanut butter, it is 
becoming harder to get in some places.

We are pleased to announce a new job opportunity under 
the auspices of the College Work Study Program. Qualified 
students may now become paid tutors for certain courses. 

This new program is being offered under the direction of 
Mr. Sauer, Financial Aid Director, and Mr. Fulcoly, Director 
of Counseling. 

Interested students should apply to Mr. Sauer's office. 
The criteria for selection for these positions will be need (as 
determined by filing an FAF), completion of the course you 
are applying to tutor in with a grade of B or better, a 
cumulative academic average of 2.0 or better and a willing- 
ness and ability to help others academically. Students will 
also be screened by the academic department in which they 
anticipate tutoring. 

It is felt there is a definite need for this service and it is 
hoped that a number of students will apply for these posi- 
tions. The areas of greatest need are Biology I and II, 
Chemistry I and II, Math I and II, Accounting I and II, and 
Statistics I and II. We would like to begin with these subjects 
and hopefully add at some future date courses such as 
Organic Chemistry, Physics, Genetics, etc. 

At the present time we are planning to hold the tutoring 
sessions in the evening in various classrooms, restricting the 
groups to no more than four students. 

We would also like to ask those students who would like 
to be tutored to register in Mr. Fulcoly 's office so that we 
can provide enough tutors in the right subjects.

Rolling Up Big Wins 

LOSE 67-72 

by Lorrl Gerus 

Last week's home game of the Women's Basketball team 
was another painful chapter in an ongoing saga of B-Ball at 
DVC. As usual, the Lady Aggies played a fine first half. 
Defend was strong and offense was able to lead. But towar^ 
the last few seconds of the half, Moravian charged ahead with 
six unanswered points to even up the score 36-36. 

From there on Moravian controlled the game. Excitement 
re-entered the game when the Aggies, down by 1 1 , made a 
valiant comeback, bringing the score up to S7-58. But the 
Aggies went cold and were uhable to connect the needed 

High scorers were sophomore Marcia Werner with 16 
points, and freshman Sandy Yerkes with 14 points. 


Another intense season of intramural basketball is under 
way. Last year featured HOH winning the closed league, and 
RAP taking the open league. Twenty-two teams altogether 
will try for a top spot in the standings for a playoff berth. 
Many feel that RAP will again be the team to beat this year. 

The girls' hockey season is almost two weeks old. A 
rematch of last year's final was played between the Goal 
Getters and Margarita's Babes. Both teams were evenly 
matched as the score ended up in a 1-1 deadlock. Margarita's 
Babes, however, were upset by US 2-0 on their next game. 
The game was highlighted by brilliant goaltending on the 
part of Katie Masinas.

Wednesday Afternoon: The Big Mean Green Del Val Mat 
Machine, 11th in the nation, rolled into Elizabethtown 
College <o take on the 14th ranked Bluejays to try to help 
boost themselves into the top ten. The Aggies had just come 
off a 36-9 drubbing of Messiah Monday night and were look- 
ing to eat bluejay for dinner. 

The match started off with a tie as our Tom Trumbauer 
tangled with Larry Lesher of E'town. Both grapplers had 
visions of winning, but when time had run out they had 
battled to a 4-4 tie. Tony Tarsi found the going a little 
tougher as he dropped a 5-2, 126-lb. bout to E'town's Ron 
Royer. At 134 Tony Novak gave the team a two-point lead as 
he swarmed all over E'town's Andy Maurer 16-4 (5 points) 
and had 7:12 in riding time. Troy Marshall (142) battled Lew 
Copenhaver (former Pa. state champion) to a controversial 
6-6 tie. The ref awarded Lew a penalty point for stalling with 
less than thirty seconds left in the match. The 150-lb. bout 
featured Ail-American Kurt Anderson (E'town) setting him 
against our own Mark Sands (Fresh.). Mark battled Anderson 
for most of the match but fell short 1 1-16 to put E'town up 
10-9. At 158, Bruce Stajnrajh gave Del Val a lead they didn't 
relinquish by decisioning Don Chapman 4-3. 

Paul Pearson (167) continued his rampage by pinning his 
man in the first period, 8th this season. Warren Robertson 
(177) followed Pearson with another first period pin, keeping 
him undefeated for the '80- '81 campaign. Jeff Bartholomew 
also remained undefeated with a forfeit (E'town's heavy- 
weight recently quit the team) and making the final tally 

NOTES: Going into Saturday's match against Western Mary- 
land, the Aggies have an opportunity to bring Del Val its 
finest season ever at 14-1. The only loss was to Division I 
powerhouse Wilkes - we're Division III. After the E'town 
match, I spoke with coach Marshall who said,"! was especial- 
ly pleased with Troy and Mark today; they both performed 
well ... as for the team, what can I say?" 

On a personal note, the referee for the match was quite 
poor and did not deserve to officiate two high-calibre teams 
such as Del Val and E'town. MAC's are at Scranton (2/27-28). 
How about a fan bus for Saturday?

Wrestling at DVC is no longer a sport but an event as the 
Aggies have increased their winning streak to six with big 
wins over Kings, Muhlenberg, and Moravian. 

Against Kings, the Aggies were unbeatable, downing the 
Monarchs 50-0. Tom Trumbauer, Rich Wagner, and Tony 
Novak had decisions before Troy Marshall and Mark Sands 
took second period pins. Following Bruce Stajnrajh 's decision 
over John Dykes, tKJth Paul Pearson and Carl Nebhut won by 
fall. Warren Robertson won by forfeit and Jeff Bartholomew 
maintained the shutout with a 41 -second pin. 

In a triangular meet with Muhlenberg and Moravian, the 
Aggies maintained their domination. Tom Trumbauer in- 
creased fiis seasonal reoird to 7-3-0 with a forfeit and an 8-2 
decision over Moravian's Jeff Bartlett. Tony Tarsi had two 
wins over the weekend, but both were forfeits. Tony Novak 
did get a win over Muhlenberg's Fred Stoyer and recorded a 
forfeit in the Moravian meet. Troy Marshall took a major 
decision over Muhlenberg's Don Gardner and a superior 

decision over Moravian's Gary Brunvoll to increase his 
record to 8-2-0. Although he received a forfeit in the meet 
against Moravian, Mark Sands defeated Muhlenberg's Andy 
Strober 5-0. Bruce Sujnarjh decisioned George Christ of 
Muhlenberg and pinned Moravian's John Horchner. 

Paul Pearson upped his record to 10-1-0 with a major 
decision over Muhlenberg's Dave Costa and recorded a fall 
over Moravian's Joe Sebia in a mere eleven seconds. Carl 
Nebhut took a superior decision over Bob Uhler of Muhlen- 
berg, and was the only Aggie to lose this weekend, with an 
8-2 loss to Moravian's Tim Johnson. Warren Robertson and 
Jeff Bartholomew both increased their record to 11-0-0. 
Robertson with an 11-8 decision over Mick Mottola of 
Muhlenberg and an l8-$econd fall in the Moravian bout. Jeff 
recorded pins in both meets, giving him seven for the season. 

With a 43-0 victory over Muhlenberg and a 50-3 victory 
over Moravian, the Aggies upped their record to 11-1 and are 
now ranked eleventh in the NCAA Division III national poll 
and are looking to move up by the end of the season.

On January 31st, the Aggies fell short against the Colonels 
of Wilkes 84-80. Although dropping the game, the Aggies had 
three men in double figures in Bill Walters (17), Tom Kehoe 
(19)and Jay Nichols (20). 

The Aggies then took to the road to take on Philadelphia's 
Pharmacy. Lead by Bill Walters' 22, the Aggies had four men 
in double figures but still fell short 91-73. 

After losing to Scranton on the victors' hardwood (Jan. 
28th), the Aggies played host to the Royals on February 4th. 
Again the Aggies had four players in double figures, but again 
they lost, 64-57. 

The Aggies continued their homestand on February 7th 
against Washington. Although the Aggies had five men in 
double figures, the Shoremen were just too strong, downing 
them 106-90. 

Bill Walters was named as an ECAC All-Star for his per- 
formance during the second week of January. Walters is 
currently second in the MAC in scoring (19.4 points per 
game) and third in rebounding as he is averaging 1 1 per game. 
Bill was also named the Moose Player of the month for the 
month of January, while senior teammate Tom Kehoe 
received the honor for the month of December.

twisted metal of the parking lots 


by Joanne Lubanski 

Most of the students have noticed all of the trash that has 
accumulated at this college over the past months and years. 
Frorri the broken glass and twisted metal of the parking lots 
to the horrible mess in the orchards. There is only one thing 
members of the faculty and student body can say (if they 
aren't speechless), and that is that something has to be done 
... NOW! 

How did this problem start? Well, it did not appear over- 
night. The trash has been piling up for years. Through lack of 
student concern and lack of discouragement of massive 
college and outside dumping (most of the non-biodegradable 
trash was dumped by outsiders), it has piled up to intolerable 
proportions. There are six parking spaces in the parking lot 
that are blocked by garbage. Every time you look at the 
orchard, you see a scene that only an old used car lot could 

Well, sorrcthing is finally being done. According to mem- 
bers of Student Government, who have been cooperating 
with Mrs. Work on the problem, the trash in the orchard will 
soon be removed. The biodegradable garbage will be burned 
and the scrap metal will be towed away. It is hoped that the 
parking lot will be cleaned during summer vacation, when the 
job will be easier. 

Editors' Note: The trash problem on campus has been an 
ongoing one for years. We urge all students, faculty and staff 
members to take a little more pride in our campus. Help is on 
the way via Dr. Seiks' Landscape Construction class. They are 
building trash receptacles that will be placed around campus. 
When they arrive, do us all a favor - USE THEM! 

the horrible mess in the orchards 


Sigma Nu 

Delaware Valley Colleger^ 

Since 1967, A<t>f2, a service fraternity, has been trying to 
make life a little better and more convenient for the students 
of DVC and surrounding communities. Founded by Drexel, 
the Del Val chapter (Sigma Nu) promised to follow the frat's 
Cardinal Principles of promoting FRIENDSHIP, LEADER- 
SHIP and SERVICE to the campus, community and nation. 
To many this may sound corny or wishy-washy but the 
members of APO do make life a little more pleasant. 

WAPO, now WDVC, was started by the Frat as a project 
to the campus. They provided all the equipment and once the 
radio station got off its feet, it was to be turned over to the 
college. (The station is now SGA-sponsored and advised by 
Dean Tasker.) Another service the members offer is the 
support during the bloodmobiles. The brothers assist the 
Red Cross twice a year during the blood drives. 

The used bookstore is also run by the brothers and should 
be improved next semester (details later). This year the 
brothers will also sponsor the Dance Marathon (March 6-7) 
with the assistance of non-brother Joanne Lubanski. 

APO does not limit its services to the campus but is also 
involved with the community. The Fraternity is affiliated 
with the Boy Scouts of America and with their brothers from 
Drexel travel bi-annually to the Treasure Island Boy Scout 
Reservation to improve the camp, whether it be raking 
debris or construction of new facilities. Also, each Christmas 
the brothers travel to the Garden Court Convalescent Home 
to fill the air with music. 

Like other fraternities, those who want to become a 
brother must be pledged in. There is one pledge class each 
semester and as part of pledging they must sponsor a project. 
Last semester's class raised $475 for the American Cancer 
Society by sponsoring a pool marathon. This semester's 
pledge class of five has yet to decide on what they will do. 
Anyone interested in joining the class should see president 
Gerald Witmer (Goldman 227) or any of the brothers. All 
pledges are subject to the approval of the brothers before 
being inducted. 

The activity of the Fraternity has been questionable in the 
past but it has gained support and currently has ten active 
brothers. Two of those brothers, past president Mary Tell- 
man and past secretary Lynn Manz, broke the all-male 
barrier last year. Mary was the first woman ever in the 92nd 
region of which they belong (Eastern College • all women - 
does have an APO chapter). Although women are permitted 
to enter the pledge class, it is up to the chapter to decide 
whether they will allow women to join. 


Many members of the senior class are wondering what 
they will be doing a year from now. The maze of resumes, 
interviews and job applications leaves many folks weak in the 
knees. What to put on the resume, how to dress tor the inter- 
view, should you include high school band on your job appli- 
cation, and (most important of all) how do you show that 
company that you are the best person for the job on two 
pieces of paper and a 20-minute interview? 

DTA (Delta Tau Alpha) hopes to answer these questions 
and make life a little easier for graduating seniors with 
"Career Night" on February 26th at 7 P.M. in Mandell 114. 
Persons from many different areas of agriculture will be 
present to speak. A dairy farmer, the U.S. Forest Service, an 
orchard man, a hiring company and a lending corporation will 
all be on hand. They each look for people to fill different 
types of jobs, thus they will be looking for different 

Bill Moore and his wife own a large dairy operation. They 
review and hire people for field production and as herdsmen 
or milkers. Their in-depth interviewing practice has given 
them good results. 

The U.S. Forest Service is now caught in the job freeze 
but their emphasis before this presidential act v^as aimed 
toward minorities and women. 

George Heckman, who works for Ontelaunee Orchards in 
Leesport, Pa., hires people for summer jobs and production 
work with the orchard. 

Corporate Staffing Group from Fort Washington hires 
sales and professional technicians for large companies in this 

Farm Credit lends money to young and old farmers, begin- 
ning and established operations of all types. They review 
plans and lend money on the basis of these plans and inter- 
views with the prospective lender. 

So, if you are interested in seeing what a job interview or 
resume prepared and presented correctly can do for you, 
please join DTA on Thursday, February 26th, in Mandell 1 14 
at 7:00 p.m. to hear these men and women speak. It could 
help you get the job you want! 


Livingston Returns 

Well, gang, as many of you know, this Monday at 8:00 
p.m., Livingston Taylor will take over the Work Gymnasium 
for a major DVC concert. What many of you do not know is 
that this is Livingston's second DVC concert. On July 19, 
1974, the Class of '76 sponsored a concert featuring not only 
Livingston, but a lead-in group and had two performances. 
Four hundred seventy-five DVC students bought tickets 
before the semester break. A total of 1,200 tickets were sold 
for the summer fest and students traveled from as far away 
as Massachusetts. 

in 1981, the ticket sales, as of press time, are not setting 
the world on fire. Why? Probably because most students wait 
until the last minute to buy tickets and the fact that Student 
Government has been unable to obtain any information 
from Livingston Taylor's agent. So, what can we tell you? 
Little about his music, except that it has a country-rock 
flavor. What we can tell you is that a lot of work has gone 
into planning and that for only four dollars you can sit back 
and relax, rock or get down to the music of thi< great enter- 
tainer. Take time out and stop by the Student Activities 
Office or the Dean's Office to pick up your ticket, if you 
haven't already! The more support you give '.c Government, 
the more they can offer in the future. See you thercll! 

IN DAYS OF OLD . . . 1968 

The following article is reprinted from The Furrow, Dela- 
ware Galley College of Science and Agriculture, April 3, 1968. 


The following addition to the Dress Code Regulation was 
passed by the Student Government on March 12th. 

In the classrooms and the dining hall all students will be 
expected to wear clean shirts with a collar. Turtlenecks and 
Henley-collared shirts will be permitted. Sweatshirts and 
sweaters without collared shirts underneath will not be 

Clean trousers will also be worn at classes and while 
eating. The definition of clean will be determined by the 
issuing officer or head waiter, and by a witness. In general, 
clean will be considered to mean: no excessive mud, dirt, 
wear, stains, rips or tears, and no obnoxious odors. Students 
returning from field labs where they have participated in 
work with animals or in dirty work, will be expected to 
change their clothes before eating, regardless of any time 

It will be entirely up to the discretion of the head waiter 
or the issuing officer whether a summons will be given. All 
issuing officers will be expected to produce a minimum of 
one witness in his behalf. 

At the March 19th meeting, another addition was made to 
the effect of permitting blue jeans in the dining hall and the 
class room.

Thank you very much for your donation of $15.00 
toward my work at the North Pole. It will help greatly in 
meeting my quota of candy canes for Christmas '81. 

The high point of my visit to the Doylestown, Pennsyl-

Dear Editor, 

During my, almost, four years at Delaware Valley College 
I have made many trips to our library. I have found the 
library staff helpful and enthusiastic, but I have found much 
of the material outdated and limited. Due to this, I have had 
to visit other libraries in the area in quest of what I was 
looking for. 

I'm fully aware that the space in our library is limited, but 
that is all the more reason why this space should be filled 
with books and materials which affect us today. Books are 
very expensive, and I know the economic pressures felt by 
schools today, but this is one area in which more funds are 
needed. By Improving our library, we will improve the educa- 
tion of the student and teacher alike. The administration, in 
my view, should find more funds through donations or other 
means and im£rove our library, which will benefit all students 
In every major. 

(Name Withheld) 

Editors' Note: The Library Is aware of the problem and has 
been working on updating the materials. They are working 
closely with the Faculty Library Committee In hopes of In- 
creasing the budget. Mrs. Shook welcomes all comments and 
urges students to stop by. if there Is something you feel the 
Library should have, stop by and visit Mrs. Shook; maybe 
they can obtain It. 

Dear Editors, 

I would like to respond to the letter written by "Some 
Hockey Players" in the Valentine's Day edition of the Ram 

I would like to point out to these obviously "unloyal 
Aggie fans" that cheerleading is considered a SPORT on this 
campus, NOT a club, NOR an intramural sport We as a 
squad must also cope with the practices of the wrestling 
team, and because of this we have learned to SHARE the 
gym. If you can recall correctly, I would like to point out 
that we asked for only one half of the gym for a short 
half hour practice. 

One other thing - if you would follow the basketball 
team, you would soon learn that the cheerleading squad 
ALWAYS practices at 7:00 p.m. before every home game! 
Also, if you had cared to investigate, you would have learned 
that the basketball game on February 4th was scheduled for 
8:15 p.m. and that it began late because the ).V. basketball 
game went into DOUBLE overtime!

I Love a Rainy Night, But: 

On February 1 2th and 1 3th the dry-Trl-sute area received 
a good amount of rainfall, but still leaving us in a water short- 
age. We need around two weeks of rain to bring our water 
supply and water tables back up to a safe level. Rain is not 
always good when it comes down from the sky in torrents. 
Since the ground was still frozen for the most part, much 
erosion and run-off occurred. Roads become flooded, farm 
fields become eroded, and on campus, the low^ying areas 
turned into mud ponds. Students who insisted on walking on 
the "soil" paths turned them into an (ugly) footprint mess. 

The puddles and mud areas are making a negative Impact 
on the view of our campus. If you have any Ideas as to how 
we can improve the drainage or decrease/eliminate the short- 
cut path appearance problems, we would like to know. Drop 
us a line and we will see what can be done. Granted, we need 
the rain but we don't need the mess it creates. Send in your 
ideas. It's your campus; let's make it look the best It can. 




longer the ticket to corporate success it once might have 
been, according to the Wall Street journal. Some corpora-

primarily because they are too expensive, expect quick pro- 
motions, want Immediate authority and will jump jobs faster 
than non-MBA recruits. As a result, more corporations will be 
hiring at the Bachelor's business degree level, says the journal.

CIGARETTES ARENT SOLD ON the U. of Wisconsin- 
Madison campus anymore. A university committee eliminated 
vending machine sale of cigarettes, saying that the school 
should not be involved in promoting a health hazard while 
simultaneously conducting research on smoking hazards. The 
student union unsuccessfully tried to retain its machine, and 
must now find a way to compensate for $10,000 in annual 
revenue from cigarette sales.

Some Like It Hot is a nK>vie, but the title could easily 
describe the heating situation at Del Val. Yes, the dorms are 
warmer than most people would like, but money Is not being 
misspent This year the college expects to use less fuel than it 
did last year. Mr. Caceres, head o< the Maintenance Depart- 
ment, is bringing about this conservation through Increased 
insulation and modification of the boiler rooms. 

One factor in the heat Is the design of the buildings. An 
ideal situation would be to have a shutoff valve in each of the 
rooms. This would allow for each room to be regulated indi- 
vidually. This would also be costly. 

Controlling the temperature is a big problem. The weather 
is not yet consistent and the thermostats cannot adjust 
readily. Until It gets cold and suys that way the heat won't 
be appreciated. 

One of the biggest factors in the heat is the students' 
attempt to solve the problem by opening windows. When the 
windows are opened, cold air rushes in and the heat is 
activated to warm this cold air. The end result is that the 
temperature goes up higher than it was originally. Mr. Caceres 
suggests as an alternate to opening windows, opening your 
door so the heat can escape into the hall. The heat will then 
be kept in the building and money won't be thrown away. 

There are many boiler rooms to work with since each 
building has its own. A program is now being set up to 
upgrade the boiler rooms. This will be a way of cutting down 
on waste by redirecting the heat. 

As the system goes into use, the problem will get better, 
but as of now it isn't fully installed. There are many options 
on equipment which can be used to conserve fuel, but It 
basically comes down to everyone doing his own part Main- 
tenance needs input from the student body as to where there 
is too much or too little heat; this will help to solve the 
problem. If you do have a problem, report it to your RA who 
can, in turn, report it to Maintenance.

The Home Foamers who are insulating many of the 
buildings on campus met with Mr. Caceres (Maintenance) and 
myself to discuss their job. The meeting was made possible by 
Dr. Wolfe in cooperation with the Ram Pages, jim Trainer, 
Student Government president, was also present Home 
Foamers and Maintenance responded to questions collected 
by the Ram Pages. 

The holes have been temporarily plugged with a filler that 
will not crack when subjected to weather and time. Rather 
than hire a contractor, the college has agreed to paint the 
holes to save money. Maintenance has already spot-painted 
Elson and begun on Goldman. Any damage which occurs and 
is reported will be covered by the Home Foamers. The cinder 
block design of the buildings presents problems with com- 
plete insulating. The foam must find channels to spread and 
sometimes by way of pipe cutouts in the wallS|Wlll enter the 
inside of the building, as in Samuel. The matenal enters as a 
foam and solidifies in the wall as a spongy material. 

It will take Home Foamers two days to complete their 
contract by finishing up Samuel. 

Editors' Note: Any questions on the Home Foamers can be 
forwarded to us or Mr. Caceres. We would like to hear from

In the 33rd National Hockey League All-Star Game wi 
February 11, 1981, the Campbell Conference {coach^ by 
Philadelphia's Pat Quinn) defeated the favored Wales Confer- 
ence (coached by Buffalo's Scotty Bowman), for the fir« 
time in many years. Calgary's Kent Oelsson scored )u$t 45 
seconds into the game and pve the Campbell Conference 
a 1-0 lead after the first period. Both the Flyers' Bill Barber 
and St. Louis' Wayne Babych got goals In the second sunza 
to give the Campbell Conference a 3-0 lead. In the final 
period, Detroit winger John Ogrodnick spoiled the shutout at 
the 5:13 mark. Philadelphia's Behn Wilson got the final goal 
at the 10:18 mark to make the final score 4-1. Of the 40 
participants in this classic, 25 were making their first appear- 
ance. One of these players was the game's MVP, Mike Liut. 
The St. Louis goal mentor stopped 25 shots, as he played 
over 31 minutes of shutout hockey. 

Although Bobby Allison led for 117 laps, Richard Petty 
took an unprecedented seventh Daytona 500 victory. Bobby

Men's Basketball has been struggling this season, but on 
February 11th they had a glimpse of glory with their second 
victory of the season over Fairleigh-Dickinson. Although the 
Aggies built up a 14-point lead by halftime, the jersey Devils 
came back to take a one-point lead late in the second half. 
The Aggies, lead by Tom Kehoe, came through in the final 
minute of play to secure a 71-68 decision. 

After the home victory, the Aggies took to the road on 
February 14th, for the final time this season, to uke on the 
Monarchs of Kings College. George Aldrich scored a game 
high of 21 for the Monarchs as they downed the Aggies 
76-63. The Aggies were lead by Mark Tymes with 19. 

On February 16th the Aggies returned home to take on 
Kutztown. The Aggies had three men in double figures, but It 
was not enough as they fell 97-73. 

Bill Walters is leading the MAC Northern Division in 
scoring, while Tom Kehoe is third. Walters is also second In

It was a cool, mild Saturday afternoon when the matmen 
of Delaware Valley arrived at the Western Maryland gymna- 
sium, a building mysteriously similar to the one on that 
bloody day in Chicap» in the 1920'$. This time the only 
bloodshed would come from a bloody nose and instead of 
^nshots, the repetitious slapping of the mat by the official 
would echo five times. Within an hour the Aggies had record- 
ed their 14th victory, beating the wildcaU46-3. This victory 
brou^t to an end the 1980-81 campaign and gave the team 
their finest record ever - 14 wins and 1 loss. 

Forfeiting the first bout (118), Western Maryland found 
tlwmwives A>wn 6-0 (nice match. Tom!). At 126, Tony Tarsi 
manhandled and out-maneuvered his opponent, picking up

Over the last ten years, there has been a surge In the 
number of runners out on the streeto and in the schools. DVC 
seems to be no different. This year, the college added a 
women's cross country team and found it to be quite success- 
ful. Interest had continued and expanded to the area of 
track. A track team does not mean "for runners only". To 
have a track team, we will need shot put throwers, discus and 
javelin throwers, high jumpers, long jumpers, triple jumpers, 
hurdlers, and short and long distance runners. But, unlike 
cross country, the running events start at 100 meters and 
Increase from there. 

At a meeting several weeks ago, approximately 25 ladies 
expressed their interest in having a track team specifically for 
women. There is still plenty of room for others and several 
events to fill. Walking around campus, I've seen many varsity 
letter jackets on fernale athletes. Those of you who boast- 
fully sport that fleet-footed symbol on your jacket could 
help to advance women's athletics at Del Val. According to 
the New York Times Magazine (May 18, 1980), 30 percent 
of the athletes in colleges are female, an Increase in ten years 
of 250 percent, in the last decade, one-third of the nation's 
17.1 million Joggers were women - in 1970, there were too 
few to count. If you are interested, suy tuned to the Ram 
Pages to find out what's happening and look for signs around 
campus. Many ladies are going to meet at the stadium at 
4 P.M. «K;h day to run. All of you are welcome to come 
down and Join us.

UM Thursday night the women's basketball team was hit 
with anoMer disappointment when they lost their last home 
fame to Ursinus. 

Something was definitely missing when the Aggies came 
up ai^nst Ursinus. From the very first the opposing team led, 
and continued to lead until the very end. Ursinus played a 
tough game, connecting on all imporunt shots and defending 
their goal with excellent teamwork. The Aggies, never getting 
It all together, had no chance of even challenging Ursinus. 

High scorer of the night was freshman Sandy Yerkes with 
1 5 points, and Marcia Werner added 1 4 points.

Around 2:00 p.m. Monday afternoon, the James Work 
Gymnasium became off-limits as the hard-working members 
of Student Government began preparing for the event of the 
evening - Livingston Taylor in concert. 

By 7:30 p.m. the stage v^as set and a crowd began to 
stream in from out of the pouring rain, carrying everything 
from umbrellas to bean -bag chairs. They covered one side of 
the bleachers and the remaining floor in front of the stage. 
Some were on-campus students, some were commuters, but 
the majority were outsiders taking advantage of the college- 
sponsored event, at a very reasonable price. 

Soon the gym lights faded as Livingston Taylor and his 
three-piece band appeared on stage. They opened the evening 
with If I Were You and You Were I. The next song was 
Livingston's recently popular hit, First Time Love. They 
played some country numbers, such as Carolina Day, I Got 
My Pajamas On and Blackbird. They sing Going Around One 
More Time, a new song called City Lights, and soared with 

Out of This World. Then things got a bit punky with Over In 
the Soviet Union, a big crowd-pleaser, and Cambridge Kirtd 
of Guy, which describes many DVC students. Some other 
popular numbers Included /'// Be In Love with You, On 
Broadway and Ready, Set, Go. Things slowed down with The 
Rainbow Connection (a favorite of DVC's variety show 
Kermit) which led into the ever-famous Somewhere over the 
Rainbow from "The Wizard of Oz". This seemed to end the 
evening as the band and Livingston left the stage, though 
something was missing. After a few seconds of the crowd 
clapping and cheering, the band returned with that missing 
ingredient - rock 'n' roll in the form of fallhouse Rock. The 
encore was ended with another "Oz" number, /f/ On/y Hod a 
Brain, a Heart and the Nerve. 

An excellently behaved audience of about 700 people 
left the gym quite satisfied. Student Government, and all 
who helped, should b<: commended, as well as thanked, for 
pulling off one of DVC's smoothest concerts. It was a great 
way to turn a rainy Monday night into a great night out!

After compiling a 14-1 record, the matmen from Del Val 
took to the road for the MAC championships. This year's 
tournament, held at Scranton University, proved to be 
emotional and quite controversial. Going into the meet it 
looked as if our Aggies would bring DVC its first outright 
MAC championship ever. After the preliminary round it 
looked even better as eight of the ten grapplers won. 

Tom Trumbauer (118) sUrted off with a 10-6 decision 
before Tony Tarsi fell to the number one seed from Swarth- 
more 6-5. Tony had wrestled to a 5-5 tie but his opponent 
was awarded one point for riding time (amount of time one 
is in control). At 134, fourth seed Tony Novak went on a 
rampage and shutout his opponent 24-0. Fifth seed Troy 
Marshall (142) picked up our first pin of the tourney at the 
4:04 mark and 150-pounder Mark Sands,seeded eight, decked 
his man in 1 :50. Bruce Stanjrajh, seeded fifth at 158, battled 
to a 6-6 tie but was downed 7-6 due to riding time. Because 
of an injury in this match, his opponent forfeited the next 
match and ended Bruce's wrestling for 1981, due to the com- 
plicated advancement regulations. Top seed Paul Pearson 
began a pinning spree as he flattened his man at the 3:06 
mark. At 177, top seed Warren Robertson ended his first 
bout in 1:20 and Carl Nebhut wasted no time pinning in a 
mere 0:36. At heavyweight, top seed Jeff Bartholomew 
decked his opponent in 0:55 seconds to end the preliminary 
round. At this point it was DVC 14%, Scranton 13Vj (advanc- 
ing 8 men), Lycoming 9% (advancing 7). 

Semi-final round, enter E'town and some controversial 
judging. At 1 1 8 Tom ran into number two seed Tom Lesher 
of E'town. The two battled to a draw in the regular season 
and the same was true in this meeting, with a little help from 
the official. When it was all over, Lesher was 6-5 on riding 
time. Tony Novak continued his tear by upsetting top seed 
Pat Holmes 20-8. Do not let the score fool you - it was 
close. Tony came about as close to getting pinned as is per- 
missible. Before there was time to recuperate, Troy took on 
the fourth seed and was nearly decked twice (and people 
wonder why coach has thinning (?) hair) before winning 1 2-6. 
The cardiac kid syndrome continued when Mark took on 
top seed and 1980 All-American Kurt Anderson from E'town. 
Similar to their first meeting several weeks ago, the two had a 
physical match and Anderson had again won 18-13. Pearson 
continued his pinning ways, flattening Moravian's man in 
0:58, as did Warren. Robertson decked the fourth seed in 
1:50. Look out - here comes E'town again! The E'town 
complex struck again as top seed Dave Chute slipped by Carl 
11-7 (E'town 3, Refs T/j, DVC 0). Ending the quarterfinals, 
)eff gave his opponent a view of the ceiling at the 0:22 mark. 
In the consolation advancements, Tom Trumbauer dropped a 
close match 4-3 to end his 1981 campaign, as did Tony Tarsi 
and Mark Sands. The leading teams at this point: Scranton 
42'/2, DVC 39/2, Susquehanna 37y4, and Lycoming 32. 

At this point in the tourney it looked as if Scranton 
would pose the biggest threat to a Del Val victory; but wait, 
Saturday posed some surprises. Going into the semifinals, 
Lycoming had pulled into first place with 102% to our 99%. 

Lycoming had two men in the third place consolation bouts, 
DVC had none. In the championship bouts, seven of the ten 
included Del Val and Lycoming, two (134 and 167) in head- 
to-head matchups. Coach Marshall said, "We'll need some 
help if we're going to win this." 

In the 126-lb. consolation bout, Lycoming's man turned 
the tide with three seconds left in the match for a contro- 
versial 4-3 win. They were now up by five. One of the most 
controversial calls of the tournament occurred in the heavy- 
weight consolation. Ahead 4-1 , the Swarthmore wrestler was 
called for slamming his opponent, a move which is illegal. 
If the slammed man isn't able to continue, he wins. The 
officials decided that the Lycoming man could not continue 
thus Lycoming is now leading us by seven. 

In the finals, our matmen had their woric cut out for 
them. Could Tony pull another upset, thfs time against the 
number two man? At 7:19 of the eight-minute bout, Tony 
found himself in the unenviable position of "shoulders on 
mat". The Lycoming matmen now had a twelve-point lead. 
The 142-lb. bout put the number three seed against fifth seed 
Troy. Up 4-1, Troy was in the upright position, when his 
opponent twisted him to the mat and dislocated his right 
shoulder. Unable to continue, Troy had to default and settle 
for runner-up. Lycoming won the 150-lb. weight class and 
had a MAC championship for 1981. By this time the team 
and fans were anything but pleased with the turnout and 
the officiating. 

Paul Pearson went out like a wildcat and picked up his 
first MAC crown in the 167 class with a 12-7 decision. If you 
can believe it, Paul was actually called for sUilling! At 177, 
Warren picked up his second MAC crown by a 1 6-1 decision 
and (you guessed it) he too was called for stalling! After the 
bout the opposition's coach went up to the officials and 
told them they had done a very poor job; "Warren deserved 
that victory and you fought him every minute of the way." 
The official simply walked away, tuoing the two-day tourna- 
ment, heavyweight |eff Bartholomew shut down the number 
two seed from Scranton, and the home crowd, by pinning 
him 2:55 into the bout. When it was all over, the scoreboard 
read Lycoming 120'/2, Delaware Valley College 112yj. The 
tourney was made a little sweeter when our Jeff Bartholomew 
was named Most Valuable Wrestler and Wrestler with the 
Most Pins in the Least Amount of Time. Congratulations also 
to Carl Nebhut for his fifth place finish in the tournament. 
NOTES: The reason that the DVC people were unhappy with 
the officials (slaughterhouse six) is tough to explain without 
having been there. Let us just say they were slow on calls in 
favor of us and quick on the trigger against us. . . In his first 
bout, Pearson's victim mopped off the mat and said, 
"Nobody should throw me around like that," nobody but 
Paul! . . . Tony, Paul, Warren and Jeff will represent DVC 
and the MAC's this weekend in the Nationals - GOOD 
LUCK! . . . Troy also qualified but because of his injury will 
be unable to wrestle . . . Thanks are extended to the faithful 
from the team who showed up for the tourney . . .Going 
into Nationals, Bartholomew has 13 pins; Robertson and 
Pearson both have 11.

Ram Pages "Letters 
to the Editors" col- 
umn Is open to the 
entire D VC commu- 
nity, faculty, admin- 
istration and Is de- 
signed primarily to 
offer an opportunity 
for anyone to voice 
his/her opinion. 

To be considered for publication, letters must be sub- 
mitted by Monday of each week, typed or printed form, and 
signed. Name will be withheld upon request, but signatures 
are necessary in case of libel suits. 

DtiT Editor, 

In the past I have without any hesitation used the 
"Letters to the Editors" coiumn to express my opinions re- 
garding a wide variety of topics and concerns, but lately I 
feel that my personal expression has been limited and cur- 
Uiled by your "NO NAME, NO PRINT" policy. The 
"Letters to the Editors" column should be a free forum used 
to express opinions whether they be popular or not and it 
should also be an asset to our school and its community. 

In your article "Out from under the Editors' Desk" the 
question "If you can put your thoughts on paper, why not 
your name?" is asked. The answer is a very simple one. It is 
called basic fear and also mistrust of the edjtorial staff. When 
sensitive issues are dealt with, anonymity cjli^be of the great- 
est comfort. If, for example, I were to say that a professor is 
an incompetent teacher who never seems to care about her 
students, I would fear reprisals from her part. In a small 
school such as ours, information can sometimes be leaked and 
a great deal of damage done. 

It is my sincere opinion that your "NO NAME, NO 
PRINT" policy is having a detrimental effect on freedom of 
expression and speech at DVC. There is an obvious need for 
anonymity or else you would not have received as many 
anonymous letters as you have. As long as the opinions ex- 
pressed are rationally stated, are clear, concise and do not in 
any way promote hatred and violence, there should be 
absolutely no reason on earth why they should not be 
printed. I personally see no definite advantage in your policy 
and if there is one, I would like it to be explained in great 
detail in your reply. 

Someone whose Constitutional 
Rights have been curtailed 
Editors' Note: Every newspaper must deal with sensitive areas 
coming from every facet of la community. Our "No Name, 
No Print" policy Is In existence simply for the college's pro- 
tection against liability suits that may arise In certain situa- 
tions. This policy Is a must for any newspaper. 

In conclusion. If there Is a problem resulting from a letter 
It would be a must for the Ram Pages to have the name of 
the letter's author. 

Dear Editor, 

As a commuting student at DVC, I was quite pleased to 
see that "Commuter Corner" is once again a part of the Ram 
/'ages. The view presented by Jeanne Cranney (Friday, 
February 6) regarding food prices in Segal Hall snack bar is 
very accurate. We do pay too much for our lunches and 
snacks and I believe that viable economic alternatives to price 
increases can be developed by wise management decisions. 
Changing brands of orange juice so that prices can be main- 
tained is just one example of these alternatives. 

At this point, one may feel that this is just another com- 
plaint letter, but I intend it to be much more. I would like it 
to be a collective "Thank you" to Pam, )ill and Marge from 
ail the students they serve so well. We may complain about 
prices, but I have yet to hear anyone who complains about 
the service. It is always fast (except during the lunch' hour 
mob), professional, courteous and above all cheery. Once 
again, thank you for a job well done. 

Sincerely yours, 

Stan M. Bromberg

— Waste or need? *~ 

by Mar^a Gehrlnger 

This Week on Campus - some feel it is a waste of paper; 
others see a value to it. Everyone knows when they are stuck 
in the mailboxes before they check theirs since the trash cans 
are usually stuck full of them also. These papers are meant to 
inform the students of current happenings on campus. It is 
hoped that they will be posted in the student's room where 
they can be seen. Student Government uses them as a type of 
ad campaign (propaganda?) to sell the programs and happen- 
ings to the students, and increase attendance at them. 

This Week on Campus used to be delivered to the rooms 
but are now delivered via mailbo^ as it reduces the manpower 
necessary for distribution. Therefore, according to Mr. 
Marron, This Week on Campus isn't a waste of paper. Do you 
agree? Let Ram Pages or Mr. Marron know your feeling; 
after all, it's your money.

The Jazz Singer 

by Jerry Robbins 

Do you want to see a good movie? I would recommend 
The Jazz Singer, starring Neil Diamond. In the film, Neil 
Diamond portrays a cantor who sings at the local synagogue 
in New York City. Even with the disapproval of his wife and 
father, he travels to California where he finally realizes his 
talents and ambitions. The movie is very emotional, but 
despite the facts that he loses the love of his wife and is, for a 
time, disowned by his father, the movie ends happily. 

The movie also contains several Neil Diamond songs. 
Among the songs performed In the movie are "Love on the 
Rocks" and "Hello, Again". If you like Neil Diamond, you'll 
love The Jazz Singer.

Agriculture will undoubtedly face a multitude of tough 
problems in the near future. Unstable demand, price support 
cutbacks, changing consumer tastes and unprecedented pro- 
duction cost increases promise to cause major headaches for 
food producers in the near future. But one far more serious 
problem could rise to haunt agriculture for years to come. 
This is the problem of adverse public opinion. 

People are notoriously uncompromising when it comes to 
the food that they eat. It's hard to listen to a news report 
without hearing of new chemicals found to be damaging to 
our health. In this area of biological research, we have only 
uncovered the cap of the mountain of potential problems. 
The result could be disastrous to agriculture. The public 
image of the sunburned laborer with pitchfork in hand is 
fading forever. The new image, unfortunately, is that of an 
ignorant chemical applicator with the life motto "If one is 
good, two is better." Inaccurate as this image may be, it may 
cost farmers incalculable dollars in coming years. 

Our public is not concerned about the necessity of 
maximizing yields to offset high fixed costs per acre. People 
don't care to know about unnecessarily strict procedures that 
find a growth hormone (DES) in a steer's ear, or the practical 
safe level that they can consume of a potentially harmful 
substance. Our government recognizes this attitude when 
establishing its regulations. 

The public demands are clear: impeccably pure food at 
minimal price. Obviously, we have only been able to meet 
one demand at the expense of the other. We can modify this 
to a more workable statement. Farmers must hold the 
public's confidence while they provide food at a justifiable 

I don't mean that agriculturists can bluff the public; 
rather we can use the same media methods as our particular 
adversaries to swing public support to our side. Promotion, 
through public education and exposure. Is the key. Show the 
farmers' dilemma, show the consequences of abolishing 
pesticides, feed additives and other agricultural chemicals. 
Meanwhile, promote the farmers as the concerned citizens 
that they most often are. The exposure alone will bring 
sympathy for the cause. 

The final step, and probably the most difficult, is effect- 
ing a 100% position of responsibility among the producers. 
Without this, any other action is useless. The effects of the 
extensive advertising that promotes milk as "the natural one" 
would be cancelled out by a single news report exposing the 
illegal use of hormones that can be traced to the milk. Each 
producer must mike Ihepersonal commitment that he will 
not sacrifice the ethics of the industry in trade for short term 
profits. For those of us who plan to be in the food producing 
industry, now is the time to make this personal commitment. 
If we wait until we are under the pressure of meeting on-the- 
job production demands, our judgment will be affected. Make 
the commitment now, and stick by it. Farming is difficult 
enough as it is without creating additional problems for 
ourselves. In the long run, favorable public opinion could be 
our biggest asset. 

West Germany — An Unlucky Year 


Can you name the location of the following sites on campus? 

by Warren Lewis 

West Germany, tike the U.S., Great Briuin, France and a 
good number of other countries, is suffering from a seemin^y 
incurable spreading disease in the 19S0's. I am referring to 
the sagging economy disease. Chancellor Helmut Schmidt is 
faced with his own particular set of symptoms which he will 
have to deal with until a remedy can be found. Chancellor 
Schmidt has a large pain coming from his "leftist" shoulder 
within the Socialist Democratic Party. A feud broice out 
when Schmidt raised a proposal to sell arms to Saudi Arabia 

and in return for those arms, Saudi Arabia would subitize 
West Germany's lifeline of crude oil. 

Schmidt also has a heavy load on his mind about the U.S. 
and NATO and whether or not to go along with the stock- 
piling of weapons in the heart of Europe. The worst news 
Schmidt received from his doctor of economics is that his 
country will suffer from stunted growth this year. It is true 
that Helmut Schmidt remains in control and retains a great 
amount of skill in government politics, but his luck is 
running out. A cure to his problems must be found soon 
before the disease gets out of control.

I would like to commend all the people who got involved 
in "Sign A Line for Your Valentine." It's nice to know that 
under all the books and farm machinery there are some very 
big hearts with some very special feelings. I think it's a credit 
to the students of this college for coming up with some of 
the great statements seen in the paper. I hope the success 
achieved in "Sign A Line" will lead to another event with the 
same idea in mind and the same enthusiastic response from 
DVC students. 

The Good, The Bad and 
The Indiififerent 

by Martha Gehringer 

Almost everyone complains about the general studies 
courses and the professors who teach them. People wonder, 
"Why take these bleeping courses? The teachers are probably 
from some Sears department store or maybe even a Wool- 
worth's." But, contrary to popular opinion, the professors of 
the general studies department do not come by way of Sears 
or Wool worth's. 

To be hired a person must have a minimum of a master's 
degree. In addition to this, the prospective professor's back- 
ground is considered. The person must also fit into the 
system here at the college by being interested in teaching in 
the classroom and be willing to become involved- in working 
with and counseling students. Since they will likely be teach- 
ing more than one course, they must have academic pro- 
ficiency in ail the courses the position would require teaching. 

At times, the position will require that several different 
courses be tau^t. Students jumble and wonder how a 
person can be an expert in all the courses. They aren't. The 
courses are meant to give a basic understanding, and not go 
into any great depths. For courses of this type a doctorate 
degree isn't required. 

The general studies courses were required before the 
college could become an accredited school by the Middle 
States. Without the dreaded general studies courses, this 
institute of higher learning would be just another vocational 
school with no bachelor of science degrees being conferred. 

The Middle States require general study courses be taught 
so that a person can be more well rounded and knowledge- 
able in the liberal arts. This can aid the student not only in 
his professional life but in his social and personal life as well. 
These courses, by teaching of the humanities, history, 
economics, and political science, will enable a person to have 
a broader grasp of the events which Walter Cronkite com- 
menu on and Joe Typical cries about. 

The courses may seem dull and uninteresting at times, but 
every course, even those in one's major, have times like that. 
But both types of courses are a part of a college education. 
If you have a complaint about a specific course or a professor, 
in your major or not, stop by and voice your opinion to the 
department chairman. Dr. Click is Chairman of General 
Studies and his office is in Lasker Hall, 2nd floor. 

Kind of Art 

by Michael Jaskoika 

Do you want to talk to and see the work of a truly 
original artist? You don't have to go very far to see him. Jules 
Goldberg, the creator and designer of "Jules' Originals", is 
located In New Hope, Pa. A Jules' Original is a collage of a 
person's life, career, or a special occasion, made into a three- 
dimensional antique car collage. 

Why is this an original type of art? Everyone has a junk 
drawer, where he puts old memorabilia and souvenirs 
(buttons, business cards, pins, old rings, watches . . . ) that 
he may have collected over the years. Jules takfcs this valuable 
junk and arranges it into an antique car, that has a working 
horn and light. A working harmonica serves as a running 
board on most cars. It is a collage that covers all aspects of 
your life or business. Simply by answering seven questions 
and sending Jules photographs and your junk he molds 
everything into a work of art. 

A few of the questions include: What are your hobbies 
and interests? Favorite drink? What do you want your 
wheels made of (baseball, soccer ball, football, birth control 
pill box, bagels, or telephone dial . . .)? Sizes of the cars 
range from 12" x 16" to 24" x 30". Prices of the cars range 
from $95 for cars already completed to $125 for a personal- 
ized car. 

Jules also has other collages available, such as his famous 
robots and Three Mile Island collage. The Three Mile Island 
collage really melts down and smokes, but it doesn't give off 
krypton gas or contaminated waste products. 

Jules' Originals have been the subject of a number of 
magazine and newspaper articles. He has also appeared on 
Philadelphia Evening Magazine and Philadelphia A.M. shows. 
Many celebrities have been a cast of "Jules' Originals": David 
Brenner, Fitz Dixon, owner of the 76ers, and Jimmy Carter, 
just to name a few. The collages are made for and given at a 
variety of occasions such as birthdays, weddings, special 
achievements, graduations, or perhaps to a favorite teacher. 
I'm sure you can think of someone who would like to have 
one of these "Jules' Originals." 

"Jules' Originals" is located on West Mechanic Street, 
in New Hope, Pa. While in New Hope don't forget to visit the 
other interesting sites (mule barge rides, Bucks County 
Playhouse, The Country Store, The Print Shop, and other 
shops) that line the streets.

On Thursday, February 19, girls' floor hockey was high- 
lighted by a match between US and SNAFU, two of the best 
teams in the league. US won the game 3-2. Wendy Hunter 
scored the game winner in the third period. The score was 3-0 
with under two minutes left in the game when Holly Funk 
scored two quick goals 16 seconds apart. Kate Matinas, goal- 
tender, held off the final attack by SNAFU to preserve the 
victory. So as of Monday, February 23, the four top teams as 
far as record goes are: US, Goal Getters, SNAFU and the 
Flakey Flyers. Anthea Strang is currently leading the league 
in scoring, averaging almost three goats per game. 

In men's basketball, as of February 23, Rap II and EMO li 
remain the only undefeated teams in league play. Following 
close behind them in the closed league are Chapter 8 and 
EMO III, only losing once. The Big Guns, Hoopstersand Hot 
Fingers are all 1-2, while Squealers, W.E.S. and High jumpers 
all fall at the bottom of the standings in that order. 

In the open league, there is a four way tie for first place 
among EMO I, RAP I, REBELS, and HIGH FLYERS. They 
have all won three of four games. Following behind them 
closely are the LOSERS (2-1) and DA pOGS (2-2). There is 
a four way tie for last place among Mean Machine, Desreal, 
lammers and HOH, all having 1-3 records. 


Dear Basketball Fans, 

On behalf of the players and coaches we would like to 
thank everyone for their support during this past basketball 
season. Groups like our Cheerleaders and "Rogge's Rowdies" 
definitely attributed to our home court advantage. Through- 
out the course of the season, we have received compliments 
about our support from opponents who play in less spirited 
surroundings. It is always easier to cheer for a champion but 
we need your kind of support in all our sports to build cham- 
pionship teams. 

Again thanks and we are looking forward to next season.

Men's Basketball concluded its 1980-81 campaign on 
February 18 with a hard fought game against Lycoming. 

After leading briefly in the first half, the Aggies fell 
behind by 6 at the intermission. The Aggies started the 
second half with 7 unanswered points and took another brief 
lead. But the Warriors who clinched a playoff position with 
the 79-71 victory were just a little too much for the Aggies to 
handle. Bill Walters scored 24 in the losing cause, as all 5 
Lycoming starters hit double figures. 

Bill Walters as of February 16 was second in the MAC 
Northern Division, in both field goal percentage and rebound- 
ing (10.0). Bill was also third in scoring (17.7). Tom Kehoe 
was third in free throw percentage, fourth in scoring (17.3) 
and eighth in rebounding (7.5).

mile record at the )ack-in-the-Box Invitational Indoor Track 
Meet held at the San Diego Sports Arena. Coghlin ran the 
mile in 3:50.6, beating his own record of 3:52.6 set in 1979 
in San Diego's Sports Arena. James Sanford equalled the 
mark set in 1973 by East Germany's Manfred Kokot in the 
50 meters in a time of 5.61 seconds.

|eff Bartholomew and Warren Robertson will graduate 
this May. They both proudly represented DVC at the Scran- 
ton Wrestling Tournament. Both Warren and Jeff went 
undefeated this year to cap four years of outstanding 
wrestling here. Even in )iigh school, both went to their 
respective finals twice. I asked both wrestlers a few questions 
before the Scranton Tournament. 

The Ram Pages would like to congratulate those men 
who went to the winter track MAC championships last week. 
The makeshift team brought home a fifth place in the 
thirteen team competition. Mark Tankersley won the hurdles 
and Jim Parsons took a second in the two mile. Not bad for 
an unrecognized team!

Suppose you, Joe or Mary College, decide to take a few 
friends home for the weekend. What if you took your college 
behavior home with you? 

Friday night you pull into the driveway. The stereo is 
blasting as the nine of you get out of your Pinto. You all run 
into the house and down to the basement, each carrying a 
huge knapsack and trying to reach the empty washer first. As 
Mom stands in the dining room waiting to meet your friends, 
all eight arise from below and rush by her, not saying a word 
as they dash to the kitchen. You greet your Mom, "Hi, 
how've you been?" and walk on past her to the kitchen 
without waiting for her reply. She stands for a moment con- 
templating your strange mood then turns to the kitchen to 
see if she can fix a little snack for you and your friends. But 
alas, her services will not be necessary, for to her surprise, 
the nine of you have made fast work of all available food In 
the refrigerator, freezer and every cabinet! Your friends have 
even managed to finish leftovers from Thanksgiving and the 
cereal you always make brother MIkey eat. 

But wait, OH NO! Mom brings a bowl of fresh fruit in 
from the dining room table, and guess what kind of fruit she 
has, GRAPES! To Mom's shocking disbelief, your friends 
instinctively divide into two groups and begin tossing, 
throwing, then bombarding each other with those nifty little 
oval objects! By this time Mom is alternately shouting and 
ducking, trying to explain to your friends that grapes are an 
edible fruit, not tiny superballs; but to no avail! 

Hence, she ascends the stairs in pursuit of your father, 
who was busy at work in the lavatory reading a scientific 
journal. However, disturbed by the noise, he has already 
gotten up and meets your Mom on the stairs.She tells what is 
happening but explains you must be a bit rowdy from work- 
ing so hard at school. Dad promises to be understanding as 
he proceeds to dispel the havoc. As Dad enters the room with 
his protruding belly covered in a white smock, you and your 
friends almost automatically stop all motion and hide any 
ammunition in sight. Dad is unmistakably baffied as he 
stands listening to the groups, snickering. Hopelessly, he 
retreats only to hear the commotion renewed. He returns to 
the kitchen only to see the same phenomena repeated. He 
calls your name and you turn, puzzled; it seems like ages 
since someone called you by your given name. Your friends 
too, snicker in wonder, since they know you only as 
Weener, DA, Load, Coon, and a multitude of other pseudo- 
nyms that your parents would not understand. Dad calls 
your name again as you gave no oral response initially. You 
stare dumbfounded, and innocently ask, "What?" 

Dad just slowly shakes his head in confusion and dis- 
belief, turns and slowly walks out. My, he sure has aged, 
hasn't he? I bet he doesn't even realize that you've grown 
into an adult!

Delaware Valley College was in a strong position last week 
after filling 5 out of 27 positions representing the 1*1 AC in 
the Division III National Wrestling Tournament. After fight- 
ing his way into the finals of the tough 142-lb. weight class, 
freshman Troy Marshall injured his shoulder. He could not 
finish the final match, and did not recover in time to make 
the trip to the national tournament. Of course, this does not 
jeopardize his team IV1VP sutus, which has been permanently 
awarded by his dad. 

Another disappointnnent came after the remaining four 
wrestlers had arrived in Cleveland. Heavyweight sUr, Jeff 
Bartholomew, was suffering from a contagious infection as 
the result of a previous injury. He was unable to compete, 
and had to be flown home to Doylestown Hospital immedi- 

ately. Bart was at the peak of his wrestling career, after cap- 
turing the MVP award at the previous week's tournament. 
The abrupt end to his season was hard felt throughout the 
Middle Atlantic Conference, The DVC team had been re- 
duced to three, junior Tony Novak (134) lost the pre- 
liminary bout, but vows to make a stronger showing next 

Senior Paul Pearson (167 lbs.) started out with an im- 
pressive pin in his first match and a twelve-point lead in the 
second. Then it appeared as if someone had pulled his plug. 
He lost his quarterfinal bout in the last minute of wrestling, 
and was eliminated from the tournament by the end of the 
first day of the nurathon tournament. He just mi»ed the 
All-American classification. 

By the second day of the tournament, only senior 
captain Warren Robertson was still alive (almost literally) in 
the tournament But Warren's bid for All-World status was 
torn apart, as was the rest of him, in an unbelievably tough 
semi-final bout. Warren had to settle for a sixth place, making 
him the school's first two-time All-American. 

The tournament was dominated by New York and New 
Jersey schools, with a strong showing by host John Carroll 
University (Cleveland). Trenton State won the tournament 
with six All-American placings. Delaware Valley finished 17th 
overall, the strongest of the MAC teams. Congratulations to 
coach Edwin R. Marshall for the successful season.

The Lady Aggies closed out their season February 21 with 
a loss to Upsala College, East Orange, N.J. Final score was 

The Aggies saw a 45-36 half-time lead dwindle in the 
opening moments of the second half when Upsala scored 8 
unanswered points. Upsata's aggressive press and offensive 
plays proved too much for the struggling Aggies, who closed 
the season with a 5-1 3 record. 

The game highlights for the Aggies was freshman Sandy 
Yerkes' 28 points. It was a game high for Yerkes and a team 
scoring record. 

Other team statistics for the season show that Marcia 
Werner was high scorer of the year with 226 points, averaging 
12.5 points per game. Brenda Wolfe has become the school 
scoring leader, with a total of 588 career points. Susan 
Hartung grabbed the most rebounds of the season with a 
toul of 135. 


by Lorn Gerus 

The players' selection of Susan Hartung as the Most 
Valuable Player reflects a positive attitude on the part of the 
Lady Aggies as they look forward to the future. Hartung, 
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Hartung, from Belvidere, 
N.J., is a graduate of Belvidere High School. She is a 
sophomore maloring in Dairy Husbandry. 

The award is not based solely on statistics, but also on the 
enthusiasm that is shown by the player. Sue contributed 143 
points {7.9/game) and grabbed 135 rebounds '7/game) in her 
position as center. The quality the other teammates saw in 
Sue was that she never gave less than 100% all of the time. 
They observed her deternnination to perform at practice and 
in games. Sue's improvements as a team player provided 
incentive for the entire team. 

Sue has the ability to keep the game of basketball in per- 
spective. She says, "Although it's an honor to be picked for 
the award, I feel without the team it wouldn't have meant 
anything at all. Basketball is a team sport and we all worked 
hard together." 

The Lady Aggies \yill have an 8Vj month break before 
beginning their next season. Their first game will be at 
Cabrini College in King of Prussia, Pa., on Saturday, 
November 28th.

Coach Veller discusses B-Ball techniques with the Lady 


Baseball under Fire 

Professional baseball players, on February 25, voted to go 
out on strike, effective May 29. The main issue involved is the 
provision of unprotected roster players as compensation for 
premium or ranking free agents signing with a new team. 
Everyone involved in this issue keeps insisting that they do 
not want to strike. Is this issue unfair? The players say, yes, 
it would cut the free agency system. Commissioner Bowie 
Kuhn calls the proposal "very fair." In this issue both sides 
may have a point, but either way the fans lose. It may be a 
choice of when professional baseball ceases to exist. If the 
players win, it will be a matter of time until big money ruins 
the sport. How high can the price of tickets go to support the 
big-money players and still be purchased by the fans? On the 
other hand, if the owners and Mr. Kuhn win, the players will 
be out on strike on May 29, and how long a strike can the 
fans tolerate? Either way, this issue would indeed ruin 
professional baseball.

In his third year as head baseball coach, Frank Wolfgang 
is optimistic about this season, saying, "Pitching is a key part 
of the game, and with the loss of two pitchers from last 
season, pitching will be the key to our season." 

John Stark, who surted last season at third base, was 
injured in an auto accident and represents the only player in 
both the infield and outfield who is not returning this season. 
The Aggies have 12 returning lettermen, including Tom Fran- 
cello, Mark Monroe, Ed Urbanik, Craig Theibault, Rod Bates, 
Leon Conrad, George Donadi, Daryl Hieges, Scott Horoff, 
Rich Dougherty, Pat Lake, and Steve West. 

Coach Wolfgang has a hopeful outlook for the season and 
is confident that Upsala will be the team to beat in the MAC. 


Coach Ned Linta, who has been the golf coach since its 
beginning, states that three good freshmen are the key to 
success this season. Returning this season will be juniors 
Jim Waniak and Paul Wiemken, as well as sophomores Paul 
Dansbury, James Marzac and Tony White. 

Coach Linta, when asked who he thought would be the 
team to beat, replied, "All of them," but sited Scranton, 
Dickinson and Lebanon Valley as the strongest teams. 


Joe Marron, taking over as head track coach this season, 
speaks very highly of his staff, as well as the team. Coach 
Marron has placed the team on a tough schedule of strength 
and flexibility exercises and stresses the fact that the Aggies 
are picked as one of the favorites in the MAC. 

All-American hurdler Mark Tankersley leads the list of 13 
returning lettermen for the Aggies. The remainder of the 
letter winners are Bill Coleman, Chip Cowher, Matt Flanagan, 
Dave Graeff, Jim Loughran, Phil Luccarelli, Jim Parsons, Ed 
Rasbach, Warren Robertson, Jeff Robinson, Gary Walters and 
Rich Weaver. 

"We are gearing up for the MAC's and the dual meets will 
take care of themselves," coach Marron told the team, but he 
cites Haverford as a very tough dual meet. 

Assisting coach Marron this season will be coach John 
Miller who will be in charge of the field events; coach Marty 
Stern will handle the hurdlers, and coaches Robert "Doc" 
Berthold and Lee Robinson will be in charge of the distance 

This year there are more girls than ever before out for 
track, but there is still no girls track team. 


KINDERGARTENING: The College's exhibit at The Philadel- 
phia Flower Show, being held this week at the Civic Center, 
received two flower show awards. The honors included "An 
Award of Merit for an Outstanding Exhibit In the 1981 
Flower Show," and "A Special Achievement Award in Horti- 
culture" which was offered by the Federation of Garden 
Clubs of Pennsylvania. 

Congratulations to Dr. Mertz and his student committee 
for a job well done. 

Bitter-sweet Season 

"Although we finished 4-20, we were in all our games but 
made too many mistakes at crucial tines," stated head coach 
Les Lombardi. The team this season had lady luck evade 
them, as they averaged just 9.1 points per game less than their 

Bill Walters led the Aggies in Koring (17.2), rebounding 
(10.3), and field goal percentage (57.8%). Walters finished 
the season second in both scoring and rebounding in the MAC 
Northern Division. Bill's 18.2 points oer game average was 
second only to George Aldrivh of Kir>g's who averaged 18.3. 
Bill also finished third in field goal percentage. 

Tom Kehoe, who followed Walters in team scoring (16.4) 
and rebounding (8.0), maintained a 75% mark from the foul 
line as he shot 108 of 144. Tom's 108 free throws was more 
than anyone else in Division III has attempted. Kehoe 
finished fourth in the MAC Northern Division in scoring and 
free throw percentage. 

The Aggies, with sizeable replacements for Walters and 
Kehoe, will be looking for a much better season next year. 
Returning for the Aggies will be starters Mark Tymes, Jay 
Nichols, and George Ceniviva, as well as letter winners Saul 
Bradley, Don Rogge, and Kevin Timochenko. 

The JV's, who finished with a 4-10 record, were led by 
Kevin Timochenko, who moved to varsity during the season. 


'80 Is Over, '81 Has Begun 

The Philadelphia Phillies are the 1980 World Champions. 
Most of us remember these words as if it were yesterday, but 
the Phillies started spring training on March 2 in preparation 
for the 1981 season. 

Dallas Green will be returning this season as manager and 
says he feels the team has a good chance to repeat. Green 
cites the Montreal Expos as the team to beat and says Pitts- 
burgh will not be far behind. Rounding out the competition 
in the National League East will be the much improved St. 
Louis Cardinals, and the Chicago Cubs and the New York 
Mats who are both very young and coming teams. 

The Phillies' season will start on April 8 against the 
Cincinnati Reds, with the home opener on April 1 3 against 
the Pittsburgh Pirates. 

Hope to see you at the ball game! 

(NOTE: Phillies tickets will go on sale tomorrow at Veterans 
Stadium or at any Ticketron office, including locally at 
Uncle Marty's in Doylestown and Wanamaker's in the 
Montgomery Mall.)

In a local newspaper article a few weeks ago, some DVC 
students were interviewed on the topic of dating. This article 
has the same idea in mind but with a continued look at the 
students' views of dating. 

How do you feel about dating? Does dating on campus 
pose a problem to you? Well, hopefully some of the thoughts 
covered in this article can help you answer some of your own 

First off, one thing I learned from doing this is - Girls 
want to be asked out; they enjoy male company; and if they 
like you, they would just as soon study with you as long as 
they are around you. Secondly - Guys are afraid to ask girls 
out, some girls said. They chicken out at the most inoppor- 
tufie time and ruin their chances. These are two big answers 
to general questions; but what about dating on this campus? 
Is it for you? 

Many people (guys and girls alike) blame campus life for 
their dating problems. It's too small; your business is every- 
one else's; and there's nothing to do on campus. These are the 
major excuses for not dating on campus, but some people 
went a little deeper. Some pleople said they were cautious 
about dating on campus because of the way relationships 
evolved on campus. "Relationships move too fast on this 

campus," one girl said. You skim through some of the 
moments that took some time to achieve in high school. 

As the conversations led deeper into relationships, the 
topic of sex was brought up, a thing that seems to be a big 
question in the minds of many college students. Almost all 
the girls that I talked to believe guys are only out for sex. 
About 60% of the guys agreed with this^ which was quite a 
surprise to me. One girl that disagreed with guys only out for 
sex accused the girls of "flattering themselves by thinking 
that way." She said there are many nice guys on campus who 
want a tot more from a girl than her body. 

A final question asked was whether parties helped in 
meeting people. Most guys and girls said they enoyed parties 
and felt it was a good chance to meet someone you'd been 
eyeing on campus. One person said, "A party is a good forum 
for meeting people, but definitely is not a prerequisite for 
meeting someone." 

What I found in these interviews is that guys and girls 
seem to be afraid of each other. I think we tend to pay too 
much attention to what we hear from other oeople, instead 
of exploring our own thoughts and feelings. I hope this article 
was a help and a reminder to people that dating someone you 
like is very achievable on this campus and something we can 
all enjoy.

Have you ever wondered when someone was going to do 
something about the unsightly, barret-like containers that are 
called trash receptacles? If you have, your worries are over. 
Through the efforts of many people, new decorative trash 
receptacles will soon be part of the campus scene. 

Student Government recognized the need for such recep- 
tacles and asked Mrs. Work about the possibility of purchas- 
ing them. The price of the receptacles was too high. Dr. Seik, 
who needed a project for his landscape construction labs for 
the bad weather, was informed of the need for the recep- 
tacles. He put his students to work drawing plans for the 
receptacles. Dr. Seik added his own touches and, through the 
efforts of Senior O.H. major Dave Tanis, the drafting was 
completed. Working in groups of four or five, the students 
began work on their project. The fifteen receptacles are now 
nearly completed and should make their debut during the 
first or second week after spring recess. They will be placed 
where they are needed most, according to the suggestions of 
the maintenance crew. 

These trash receptacles are made to blend in with the 
landscape. They are decorative and well-constructed. These 
receptacles are also economical for the college because the 
students are doing all the work. Comparable receptacles, if 
purchased completely assembled, would cost between three 
and four times as much. 

Dr. Seik feels that this project has two purposes. First, 
the project gives the students practical experience. It provides 
the students with skills that will probably be used in the 
future. Not only does it give the students a "hands on" 
experience, but the project will also help to improve the 
appearance of the surroundings. 

This, however, is only one of the projects that Dr. Seik 
has planned for the Spring semester. He has plans to replace 
the rock barrier by the library and extend the posts and 
chains. There are plans to redo the sidewalk and steps 
between the Dining Hall and Elson Hall. Another project is to 
install a fieldstone drain ditch to eliminate the erosion 
problem along the road leading to the greenhouses. Yet 
another project is to redo the "island" by the library. Dr. 
Seik would also like to see decorative signs replace some of 
the unsightly ones now being used. Benches may also be 
added to the Work Garden in front of the gym. All of these 
projects have the double function of providing the students 
with practical knowledge and of campus beautification. 

The students must also do their part. Take pride and 
respect the landscape. It's your campus, too. It is acts such 
as breaking branches and toiletpapering the trees that greatly 
detracts from any landscape. So make the effort to use the 
receptacles, have pride, and keep YOUR campus looking

It's that time of year again: the time to give, a time to 
help the needy and those who really need your help. Those 
without it could possibly die. No, we're not talking about 
sending food to the starving peoples of the world, but those 
who need the gift of life — blood! 

Let us give the most precious gift one can offer — one unit 
of your blood. The process, contrary to popular belief, is 
quite painless and takes only about 45 minutes of your time. 
Just think, by participating in this event you may save 
someone's life. It could be the life of a loved one you save; 
besides, by donations you guarantee the people of the college 
community, including yourself, blood at any time you may 
need it. 

Take a little time Wednesday, April 1st, between 10:30 
a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and stop by the RNG to give the gift of 
life. Our goal is 200 units; help us top this!!! 


This is nacMsary to they know how many peofN* 
to prepare for. You've got 8 to 9 pints of blood in 
you and you don't need ail of tham. Since you can 
donate every eight weeks, why not give a pint now? 
It could help someone els*. 

Remember to sign up so that thay can prepare. But 
if you forgat, go anyway; fare's liways room. 


It's that time of year again!

Dear Editor - 

I would like to reply to "Someone" whose letter you 
published in the February 27th Ram Pages. 

Dear Someone - College is for learning, so listen up. 
You say that the "Letters to the Editors" column should be 
a free forum; and so it is. But you feel that your "Constitu- 
tional rights" have been violated. You say that "when sen- 
sitive issues are discussed, anonymity can be of the greatest 
comfort", and you cite a hypothetical accusation against an 
incompetent teacher. 

Well, since you brought it up, look at Amendment VI of 
the Bill of Rights. There you'll find these words: "The 
accused shall enjoy the right ... to be informed of the 
nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the 
witnesses against him ..." 

In a democracy, there are both rights and responsibilities. 
Anonymous accusations have no place in a democracy, only 
in tyrannies. I hope you take comfort from this fact.

Dear Students, 

This letter was originally in response to Martha Gehringer's 
article on the usefulness of Student Government's "This 
Week on Campus," but It seems a fine opportunity to press a 

Just recently Student Government sponsored a small 
concert featuring Livingston Taylor. Due to the cost involved, 
we considered this a major event so we felt using a little 
money to advertise in "This Week on Campus" would be to 
the benefit of the students. The show was a success and we 
realize that if not for tests and weather the turnout would 
have been somewhat better. 

This leads me to a major concern that Student Govern- 
ment has regarding money. The money wc use comes from 
each and every one of you. Because of this we try to put on 
events that will be of benefit to as many as we can. Hence, I 
am really encouraging you as students to show up at events 
that come to campus. The price Is never unreasonable and 
you might get some real value out of it, if not just plain fun. 
Not to be a cynic, but we don't do these events for ourselves; 
they are for you, from your money. College is meant to get a 
specialized higher education with the added benefit of 
increased social interaction. We are trying to provide this. 
You can help by enjoying events and coming to meetings 
with suggestions of future social activities. Meetings are held 
in Segal Basement at 6:45 p.m. on Tuesday nights for Social 
House and 6:30 p.m. Monday nights in Work Hall for Con- 
duct and Policy. We need positive and negative feedback on 
past and future presentations. Help us help the environment 

Future events include an elephant and camel on campus 
all day for your riding entertainment, a professional frisbee 
team, a greaser dance, another (even bigger) concert, and 
many others. With spring coming, these and any event that 
individuals may plan (UN Parties, Dress As Weird As You 
Can Parties) will make this a great semester. Thanks for your 

With ail sincerity,

Dear Editor, 

Although acts of vandalism on our campus are limited to 
a few irresponsible, intolerable or drunk individuals, the re- 
maining student body, faculty and administration must 
suffer the consequences of their despicable actions. When 
college property is damaged, we each pay for it in different 
ways. Students are sometimes deprived of a learning experi- 
ence and must pay higher tuition fees in order to cover costs 
while the administration must endure additional work loads 
in order to repair the damage that was done. 

In 99% of all cases the damage is repaired or the equip- 
ment is replaced, but it is the other 1% that intrigues me. The 
television in the basement of Segal Hall was vandalized almost 
two years ago and it has yet to be repaired. The channel 
selector as well as the antenna were destroyed at that time 
and they have yet to be replaced. In December, 1978, I per- 
sonally asked Student Government representative Fred Gross 
why the television had not been repaired. He explained to me 
that he hoped that by waiting a few months it would act as a 
deterrent to vandalism. I am sure that almost everyone would 
agree that more than a few months have passed since then 
and yet the television still remains broken. I am not sure 
whether this 1% represents the administration's attitude 
towards commuters or whether it is simply an oversight on 
their part 

With Spring Break coming in one week, I feel that it 
would be an ideal time to have the television repaired. I am 
willing to personally take it to the shop, if necessary. My 
intentions are not simply to let off steam, but rather to take

THE NEW STUDENT CENTER: A Conglomerate of Ideas 

by Jennifer Conway 

Delaware Valley College is considering building a new 
Student Center, and the Ram Pages wanted to hear some 
ideas from the students about new facilities and additions. 
So, we took a poll and came up with some unique and educa- 
tional (?) solutions. Although the Student Center is tenutive, 
and the size and furnishings will be limited due to funding, 
some of the following ideas could be po^ible.

A stage for a band - amphitheatre • lou of windows • solar 
e heating. 

'82 Bob Kane — on campus 

A bar - a central hookah - a saline flotation tank. 

'83 Adrienne Sears - on campus 

Carpet • fireplaces with couches • fooseball table and 
grocery store.

machines with better (healthier) choice of foods, cafe 
style selection, and a Jukebox. 


A separate smoking area.

College and Ram Pages Push for Traffic 

Come May, the south entrance of our college should be 
flashing amber and red. As the result of a meeting with New 
Britain Borough, PennDot, the College and the Ram Pages, a 
traffic warning signal should be functioning by the end of 

An agreement with New Britain Borough made the up- 
coming investigation possible Wednesday night, February 
25th, at a special meeting called by borough traffic chairman 
Louis Bienis. Dr. Feldstein presented the college's views 
stressing "the problem is there and must be solved, before a 
faulity." Mr. Bienis, Borough Engineer Schaffer and PennDot 
District Traffic Engineer Lester agreed. Mr. Lester said he had 
been through the entrance and commented that the situation 
is not a good one. Lester went on to say, "If the college was 
just beginning operation today, the entrance there now would 
not be accepted by PennDot." 

No matter how critical the situation is, PennDot can only 
assist in the investigation, the reason being that the depart- 
ment is neariy bankrupt (so much for our tax dollars!) and 
that the criteria for a traffic light is dependent on its hazard- 
ousness. In layman's language, for PennDot to install a light, 
several faul accidents will have to occur. Even then, it may 
not be enough as the state is backlogged with requests for 
safety light devices. 

Once the paperwork is out of the way, the college is in the 
driver's seat The administration will have to finance the 
investigative report (approximately $2,500) and the 4-way 
beacon that wilt be installed ($4,000 to $5,000). Mainten- 
ance and energy costs will also be the responsibility of the 
College . . . and this is only the beginning. The beacon is only 
a short-term solution to the problem, as other corrective 
measures, upon suggestion of the study, will be scheduled for 
the future. 

More information will be coming your way via this 
paper as it is collected. Keep in mind that the problem is on 
its way to being solved. In the meantime, DRIVE SAFELY, 


Two weeks ago I suffered a slight stroke and as a result 
was hospitalized. The hospital and attending doctors did 
much for me but by far the finest and most effective medi- 
cine administered was from my students. As best I can recall, 
eighteen young people came to see the "old baldhcaded so- 
and-so". I can't begin to tell you how much this meant to me 
and how much it helped in my recuperation. 

In addition, the numerous cards I received (I have lost 
count) were certainly an elixir contributory to my recovery. 
Kids, I just can't thank you enough!! As it appears now, I'll 
be returning the second week of March. You all know where 
my office is. I'm there to help you. Mrs. Keenan and I are 
ever so thankful for having so many young friends!! As the 
Spanish say, "Vaya con Dios."

Editors' Note: The television has been checked out and the 
cost of repairs did not seem feasible. Overall, the television 
works fine. The Issue has been recently discussed with Mr. 
Tasker and the Student Government commuter reps. They 
have appropriated money for a new television next year. 



jean-Michel Cousteau, the son of famed ocean explorer 
Jacques-Yves Cousteau, will present a lecture-slide presenta- 
tion titled "Project Ocean Search" at Delaware Valley 
College on Wednesday, March 11, 1981. The program is 
scheduled for 8:00 p.m. in the James Work Gymnasium and 
admission is $2.00 for adults and $1.00 for students. During

beautiful photographs and film, Cousteau shares exciting 
adventures and evidence of man's potentially harmonious 
presence in marine ecologies. 



The Roommate Game, held on March 1st, proved to be 
an enjoyable and interesting evening. The players and the 
members of the audience learned a lot of interesting informa- 
tion about the roommates who participated. The winning 
roommates were Cindy Jack and Dawn Perusek, Cooke 2nd. 
They received $50 foi their ulents. The three runners-up 
were: (1) Cathy Dell and Sharon Gadd, (2) Michelle Richard- 
son and Amy Wright; and (3) Walter Weir and John Roshella. 
Each twosome received $20. The game was organized by 
Tom Fournier and Elisa Newhart Due to the amount of 
interest shown in the game, it will probably be held again 
next year.

A Pope Who Spreads Hope 

by Warren Lewis 

Pope John Paul II is definitely a man of the world. He has 
traveled more than any other Pope in history and has visited 
more countries in a shorter period of tinne than any other. In 
the past week, )ohn Paul II visited Pakistan, The Philippines, 
Japan and many islands in the region giving hope to the 
thousands while preaching his beliefs which have never 
changed since becoming the leader of the Vatican (or Pope). 

Pope John Paul attempu not to mix politics with his 
business but it is inevitable that it will mix in one way or 
another. One of Pope John Paul ll's main goals of his tour 
was to attempt to get the separate Catholic religions to work 
more closely with one another. He called for an end to fight- 

ing with each other and with your neighbors. He wanted to 
give hope to the needy and remind the well-off that these 
people need their assistance. Along with the job there are the 
dangers that go with every territory John Paul II may enter. 
Several threats were nrtade on the Pontiff's life. One man was 
kilted in one incident. Some regions John Paul II meant to 
enter he was persuaded by his associates not to due to the 
danger risk. 

Guam and several other c(Hintries and islands will be 
covered by the Pope this week to continue his spread of 
influence and hope. For the millions who get to tee him, it Is 
an experience, whether spiritual, ritual, emotional or other; 
It is something that will not be forgotten. 




On April 30th (rain or shine) there will be a Pig Roast. 
This event is sponsored by R.A.'s and Student Government

of food to be ordered. The ticket sale will be held during the 
week of March 9th-13th in the lobby of the Dining Hall 
during supper. Faculty and staff may purchase tickets at the 
Residence Life Office. 


Anyone interested in having an individual exhibit on 
A-Oay, and who wishes this exhibit to be judged with other 
individual student exhibits, should see Dr. Lazarus for a 
preliminary form and a requirements sheet. 

Don't forget, you are also eligible for a partial reimburse- 
ment for expenses.

Recent polls, conducted for mostly political purposes, 
show that conservation is a growing concern among rural and 
urban groups alike. While urban people are primarily con- 
cerned with environmental issues (such as air and water 
pollution), rural people are more concerned with issues that 
more directly affect themselves, including soil conservation 
and non-renewable petroleum fuels. This should be expected. 

The unexpected result of these public samplings Is the 
high priority in which rural people have suddenly placed 
these conservation Issues. Almost as if rural people have been 
wakened to view their environmental problems, they rank 
this concern just below inflation and national defense. This 
contrasts with the urban polls, which indicate a fairly 
stabilized order of concerns, including first economic con- 
cerns (inflation, unemployment, welfare), then turning to a 
field of other matters, such as conservation. 

Traditionally, rural people have not been greatly con- 
cerned with conservation, possibly because they did not see 
any threat to themselves. Their air was clean, their wells were 
pure and their fields looked alright from a distance. Now it 
seems that rural people have realized that their strength is in 
retaining these resources. They apparently consider this more 
important than many political and economic issues, also 
ranked by the poll takers. 

This says a lot in favor of our agricultural community. It 
is very rare that a group will place long-term objectives of this 
type in front of short-term financial interests. Farmers should 
not be accused of ignoring the environment in favor of 
economical advantage. Rural people arc at least as much con- 
cerned about conservation as the rest of ^c population. They 
only need a little help, in the form of prolessional advice and 
financial assistance, to put these concerns into action for the 
benefit of us all. I hope that this evidence will be considered 
in reevaluating environmental conservation policies in the 
near future.

Delaware Valley College was in a strong position last week 
after filling 5 out of 27 positions representing the MAC in 
the Division III National Wrestling Tournament. After fight- 
ing his way into the finals of the tough 142-lb. weight clau, 
freshman Troy Marshall injured his shoulder. He could not 
finish the final match, and did not recover in time to make 
the trip to the national tournament. Of course, this does not 
jeopardize his team MVP sutus, which has been permanently 
awarded by his dad. 

Another disappointment came after the remaining four 
wrestlers had arrived In Cleveland. Heavyweight sUr, Jeff 
Bartholomew, was suffering from a contagious infection as 
the result of a previous injury. He was unable to compete, 
and had to be flown home to Doylestown Hospital immedi- 

ately. Bart was at the peak of his wrestling career, after cap- 
turing the MVP award at the previous week's tournament. 
The abrupt end to his season was hard felt throughout the 
Middle Atlantic Conference. The DVC team had been re- 
duced to three. Junior Tony Novak (134) lost the pre- 
liminary bout, but vows to make a stronger showing next 

Senior Paul Pearson (167 lbs.) started out with an im- 
pressive pin in his first match and a twelve-point lead in the 
second. Then it appeared as if someone had pulled his plug. 
He lost his quarterfinal bout in the last minute of wrestling, 
and was eliminated from the tournament by the end of the 
first day of the nurathon tournament. He just missed the 
All-American classification. 

By the second day of the tournament, only senior 
captain Warren Robertson was still alive (almost literally) in 
the tournament But Warren's bid for All-World sutus was 
torn apart, as was the rest of him, in an unbelievably tough 
semi-final bcHit. Warren had to settle for a sixth place, making 
him the school's first two-time All-American. 

The tournament was dominated by New York and New 
Jersey schools, with a strong showing by host John Carroll 
University (Cleveland). Trenton State won the tournament 
with six All-American placings. Delaware Valley finished 1 7th 
overall, the strongest of the MAC teams. Congratulations to 
coach Edwin R. Marshall for the successful season. 

The Final Five. 


by Lorri Gerus 

The Lady Aggies closed out their season February 21 with 
a loM to Upsala College, East Orange, N.J. Final score was 

The Aggies saw a 45-36 half-time lead dwindle in the 
opening moments of the second half when Upsala scored 8 
unanswered points. Upsala's aggressive press and offensive 
plays proved too much for the struggling Aggies, who closed 
the season with a 5-13 record. 

The game highlights for the Aggies was freshman Sandy 
Yerkes' 28 points. It was a game high for Yerkesand a team 
scoring record. 

Other team statistics for the season show that Marcia 
Werner was high scorer of the year with 226 points, averaging 
12.5 points per game. Brenda Wolfe has become the school 
scoring leader, with a total of 588 career points. Susan 
Hartung grabbed the most rebounds of the season with a 
toul of 1 35. 


by Lorri Gerus 

The players' selection of Susan Hartung as the Most 
Valuable Player reflects a positive attitude on the part of the 
Lady Aggies as they look forward to the future. Hartung, 
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Hartung, from Belvidere, 
N.)., is a graduate of Belvidere High School. She is a 
sophomore majoring in Dairy Husbandry. 

The award is not based solely on statistics, but also on the 
enthusiasm that is shown by the player. Sue contributed 143 
points (7.9/game) and grabbed 135 rebounds 7/game) in her 
position as center. The quality the other teammates saw in 
Sue was that she never gave less than 100% all of the time. 
They observed her determination to perform at practice and 
in games. Sue's improvements as a team player provided 
incentive for the entire team. 

Sue has the ability to keep the game of basketball in per- 
spective. She says, "Although it's an honor to be picked for 
the award, I feel without the team it wouldn't have meant 
anything at all. Basketball is a team sport and we all worked 
hard together." 

The Lady Aggies will have an SVi month break before 
beginning their next season. Their first game will be at 
Cabrini College in King of Prussia, Pa., on Saturday, 
November 28th.

Professional baseball players, on February 25, voted to go 
out on strike, effective May 29. The main issue involved is the 
provision of unprotected roster players as compensation for 
premium or ranking free agents signing with a new team. 
Everyone involved in this issue keeps insisting that they do 
not want to strike. Is this issue unfair? The players say, yes, 
it would cut the free agency system. Commissioner Bowie 
Kuhn calls the proposal "very fair." In this issue both sides 
may have a point, but either way the fans lose. It may be a 
choice of when professional baseball ceases to exist. If the 
players win, it will be a matter of time until big money ruins 
the sport. How high can the price of tickets go to support the 
big-money players and still be purchased by the fans? On the 
other hand, if the owners and Mr. Kuhn win, the players will 
be out on strike on May 29, and how long a strike can the 
fans tolerate? Either way, this issue would indeed ruin 
professional baseball.

In his third year as head baseball coach, Frank Wolfgang 
is optimistic about this season, saying, "Pitching is a key part 
of the game, and with the loss of two pitchers from last 
season, pitching will be the key to our season." 

John Stark, who started last season at third base, was 
injured in an auto accident and represents the only player in 
both the infield and outfield who is not returning this season. 
The Aggies have 12 returning lettermen, including Tom Fran- 
cello, Mark Monroe, Ed Urbanik, Craig Theibault, Rod Bates, 
Leon Conrad, George Donadi, Daryl Hieges, Scott Horoff, 
Rich Dougherty, Pat Lake, and Steve West. 

Coach Wolfgang has a hopeful outlook for the season and 
is confident that Upsala will be the team to beat in the MAC. 


Coach Ned Linta, who has been the golf coach since its 
beginning, states that three good freshmen are the key to 
success this season. Returning this season will be juniors 
Jim Waniak and Paul Wiemken, as well as sophomores Paul 
Dansbury, James Marzac and Tony White. 

Coach Linta, when asked who he thought would be the 
team to beat, replied, "All of them," but sited Scranton, 
Dickinson and Lebanon Valley as the strongest teams. 


Joe Marron, taking over as head track coach this season, 
speaks very highly of his staff, as well as the team. Coach 
Marron has placed the team on a tough schedule of strength 
and flexibility exercises and stresses the fact that the Aggies 
are picked as one of the favorites in the MAC. 

All-American hurdler Mark Tankersley leads the list of 13 
returning lettermen for the Aggies. The remainder of the 
letter winners are Bill Coleman, Chip Cowher, Matt Flanagan, 
Dave Graeff, Jim Loughran, Phil Luccarelli, Jim Parsons, Ed 
Rasbach, Warren Robertson, Jeff Robinson, Gary Walters and 
Rich Weaver. 

"We are gearing up for the MAC's and the dual meets will 
take care of themselves," coach Marron told the team, but he 
cites Haverford as a very tough dual meet. 

Assisting coach Marron this season will be coach John 
Miller who will be in charge of the field events; coach Marty 
Stern will handle the hurdlers, and coaches Robert "Doc" 
Berthold and Lee Robinson will be in charge of the distance 

This year there are more girls than ever before out for 
track, but there is still no girls track team. 


KINDERGARTENING: The College's exhibit at The Philadel- 
phia Flower Show, being held this week at the Civic Center, 
received two flower show awards. The honors included "An 
Award of Merit for an Outstanding Exhibit in the 1981 
Flower Show," and "A Special Achievement Award In Horti- 
culture" which was offered by the Federation of Garden 
Clubs of Pennsylvania. 

Congratulations to Dr. Mertz and his student committee 
for a job well done. 

Bitter-sweet Season 

"Although we finished 4-20, we were in all our games but 
made too many mistakes at crucial times," stated head coach 
Les Lombardi. The team this season had lady luck evade 
them, as they averaged just 9.1 points per game less than their 

Bill Walters led the Aggies in scoring (17.2), rebounding 
(10.3), and field goal percentage (57.8%). Walters finished 
the season second in both scoring and rebounding in the MAC 
Northern Division. Bill's 18.2 points per game average was 
second only to George Aldrich of King's who averaged 18.3. 
Bill also finished third in field goal percentage. 

Tom Kehoe, who followed Walters in team scoring (16.4) 
and rebounding (8.0), maintained a 75% mark from the foul 
line as he shot 108 of 144. Tom's 108 free throws was more 
than anyone else in Division III has attempted. Kehoe 
finished fourth in the MAC Northern Division in scoring and 
free throw percentage. 

The Aggies, with sizeable replacennents for Walters and 
Kehoe, will be looking for a much better season next year. 
Returning for the Aggies will be starters Mark Tymes, Jay 
Nichols, and George Ceniviva, as well as letter winners Saul 
Bradley, Don Rogge, and Kevin Timochenko. 

The JV's, who finished with a 4-10 record, were led by 
Kevin Timochenko, who moved to varsity during the season. 


'80 Is Over, '81 Has Begun 

The Philadelphia Phillies are the 1980 World Champions. 
Most of us remember these words as if it were yesterday, but 
the Phillies started spring training on March 2 in preparation 
for the 1981 season. 

Dallas Green will be returning this season as manager and 
says he feels the team has a good chance to repeat. Green 
cites the Montreal Expos as the team to beat and says Pitts- 
burgh will not be far behind. Rounding out the competition 
in the National League East will be the much improved St. 
Louis Cardinals, and the Chicago Cubs and the New York 
Mets who are both very young and coming teams. 

The Phillies' season will start on April 8 against the 
Cincinnati Reds, with the home opener on April 1 3 against 
the Pittsburgh Pirates. 

Hope to see you at the ball game! 

(NOTE: Phillies tickets will go on sale tomorrow at Veterans 
Stadium or at any Ticketron office, including locally at 
Uncle Marty's in Doylestown and Wanamaker's in the 
Montgomery Mall.)

SAMUEL HALL FIRE: Lucky This Time 

by M. D. McManiman 

At 2:09 a.nn. Friday, March 27, DVC experienced its 
second dormitory fire of the '80-'8l school year - the third 
since last spring semester. As with the fire of Work Hall, this 
one is of suspicious origin. The two primary causes suspected 
by investigating officials are fireworks or smoking. 

The fire broke out in the top bunk of Room 203. James 
Kurfuerst, sleeping in the bottom bunk, had gone to bed an 
hour before after spending the evening with some friends 
down the hall. The mattress was engulfed by flames and had 
started to move into the roof area when neighbor Russ 

Windle noticed the smoke, sounded the alarm and began 
knocking on doors. Bob Paranbo, R.A.'s Ron Bates and 
Warren Robertson, grabbed fire extinguishers, entered the 
room and began extinguishing the blaze. It was at this time 
that they noticed Jim was still in the room. Having been 
awakened by the noise, Jim was blinded and choked by the 
thick heavy smoke and was crawling to the door when Bob, 
Ron and Warren entered. Shortly thereafter Doylestown and 
Chalfont Fire Companies were on the scene to extinguish the 
blaze and be sure that there was no immediate danger of the 
fire spreading to the roof or other rooms. 

As a result of the blaze, Jim was admitted to Doylestown 
Hospital for smoke inhalation, lacerations and burns of the 
hand. He was released later that day. Two others (security 
guard Dave Atkinson and sophomore Richard Holmes) were 
treated for smoke inhalation and immediately released. 

Property damage to the room was considerable, mostly 
from smoke and extinguisher residue, with the mattress and 
ceiling suffering the most fire damage. Neighboring rooms 
suffered some smoke and residue damage with no property 
being lost. 

The cause of the blaze is still under investigation, with 
fireworks and smoking as the leading suspects. Why fire- 
works? After the blaze authorities found some fireworks in 
the hallway and were informed that someone had thrown 
some "sleep-awaken" noisemaker into a nearby room. If this 
is the case, some serious thought had better go into this form 
of prank. 

We came as close as we ever have in losing a life in a fire. 
Instead of reading Jim's name in the Ram Pages it could just 
as well have been in an obituary column. The fact of the 

matter is that through someone's carelessness, one life was 
nearly lost and one hundred others were endangered! The 
time has come for us, the residents of Del Val, to sit back and 
think about the rules and regulations set down by the 
Administration. Fireworks, of any nature, are illegal on 
campus. Mr. Tasker, Dean of Students, is making it well 
known that anyone caught with or setting off fireworks 
will be EXPELLED - No Ifs, Ands or Buts! If smoking was 
the cause, one should know better. Smoking in bed is 
dangerous and it only takes one mistake to prove it. 

This time we can say, "What if" in thankful tone; next 
time . . . well, that is up to each and every one of us.

Ed's Diner, an area institution, has closed its doors. The 
sign in the window reads, "Closed Temporarily", but many 
feel Ed's is closed for good. The owners were unavailable for 
comment, but other local businessmen claim the construc- 
tion of the Rt. 611 and Rt. 202 by-passes brought about a 
decline in clientele. Rising inflation and operating costs are 
also possible contributory factors to the diner's closing. 

Speaking with Jim Trainer, Student Body President, and 
R.A. for Elson Hall, he voiced what seemed to be the overall 
feeling of the student body. "A fine eating establishment and 
a DVC legacy has come to a sad finish," Jim explained. Early 
in the fall semester, Jim led the freshmen men from his hall 
on a pilgrimage to Ed's allowing them to start their DVC 
college careers in the right perspective. "Expressing the 
present loss is only half the problem; incoming freshmen may 
never experience the opportunity to sample Ed's culinary 
expertise," stated the R.A. 

Another problem arising from the situation is the lack of 
all-night eating hang-outs for the Bux-Mont area. The need 
to satisfy those late night binges will have to be fulfilled 
somehow and somewhere else, such as Denny's by Mont- 
gomery Mall. 

But, alas, this may not be as bad as it seems. Perhaps Ed's 
is just closed temporarily. If so, we all will just have to sit 
back and wait for the reopening. And if Ed's is gone for 
good . . . well . . . then an era has come to a close. 

LIVE ...."in concert" 



by Jennifer Conway 

On Wednesday, April 22nd, at 8:00 p.m., Delaware Valley College will tome alive with the music of Daryi Hail and John 
O^tes. This fine team of musicians are "Locals", both being reared in the Lansdale area. Their new album, "Voices", has 
received raves from critics and is currently rated in the top ten. The hit single from the album, "Your Kiss Is on My List," is 
also in the top ten. Aside from their current release are many of their older songs which are quite popular, including "Sara" 
and "Rich Girl". Don't miss this one; it will prove to be one of the finest performances ever held at DVC. Tickets are on sale 
now in Mr. Marron's office at $5.00 for students and $10.00 for general admission. The concert will be held in the James Work 
Gym. Seats are limited.

It is i typical Tuesday afternoon and time for class. You 
walk into the classroom and already feel the boredom. But 
wait! There at the door is one of your classmates! He is giving 
out toothpicks to fellow classmates. "Two per person," he 
says, "They're extra heavy. You shouldn't need ^ny more." 
Everyone is properly equipped with their toothpicks and 
prepared for another General Study course lecture. 

The professor then enters the room, hangs up his trench- 
coat and hat, and removes his rolebook from his briefcase. 
He takes role. Everyone is present. (Everyone had to l>e 
present because they had each taken all their allowable cuts.) 

The professor begins to lecture and soon turns to write an 
"important" phrase on the blackboard. When he again faces 
the group of intensely interested students, he is amazed to 
discover that each student has propped his eyelids open with 

The lecture continues. An unsuccessfully stifled yawn is 
heard in the background. 

More lecture. 

The breaking of small sticks is heard as the toothpicks, 
because of the immense weight of the eyelids, break under 
pressure and the students' heads go down on the desk or are 
firmly propped up by the hands with the elbows resting on 
the desk. 

Eventually everyone becomes physically present only. 
Time passes. Lecture continues as the students' pens lay idle, 
still loosely clutched in their hands. 

Wait! Someone becomes aware of what's happening. 
Miraculously, everyone becomes conscious in a matter of 
seconds. "Okay," says the professor, packing his notes away, 
"That's all for today. Have a nice day." He departs. 

Lethargically, the students all get up and leave. You look 
around; you see only the remains of broken toothpicks on 
the floor. "The janitors will know that this room was used 
for a General Study course today," you silently tell yourself 
as you leave. More excitement awaits.

Friday the thirteenth proved to be an unfortunate day for 
a local tree and an M.W. Wood truck. Being that the food 
preparation business isn't what it used to be, it seems ole' 
M.W. has entered the tree maintenance business. Unfor- 
tunately, someone forgot to tell driver Peter Staudt that a 
chain saw, not a truck box, is to be used, and that any object 
that could be damaged should be moved (Bill McFadden's 
pickup). Below is the official accident report filed by Chief 


To: Mrs. Work / Mr. Reiter Date: 3/18/81 

From: Security Office 

Subject: Vehicle accident of March 13,1981 

Names of persons involved: Peter j. Staudt (M.W. Wood truck 

driver), William McFadden (owner of parked vehicle), Chief 

Brown, New Britain Boro P.D. 

At about 3:30 P.M., 3/13/81, this office was notified of an 
accident that had just occurred by the Alumni House at the 

Photo courtesy of Daily Intelligencer 

south entrance on Alumni Lane. Investigation by this office 
and the New Britain Boro Police ascertained the following 
through interviewing the driver of the principal truck. -Mr. 
Staudt had completed a delivery to our dining hall and was 
exiting the campus via the south entrance when an oncoming 
vehicle allegedly caused him to move his 1 2' high truck to the 
right to avoid a side swipe. At that time, the truck struck the 
subject tree limb, snapping it from the tree trunk and causing 
it to fall on Mr. McFadden's parked pick-up truck. The speed 
of the truck was given as 20 mph and considerable damage 
was done to the truck body. Damage to the parked pick-up 
truck included several small dents and scratches. There were 
no injuries. Neither vehicle had to be towed; however, the 
M.W. Wood truck was left here until temporary repairs could 
be made to body. 

Action Taken: Appropriate personnel notified. 
Comments: Turning degree to avoid sideswipe and speed of 
truck are believed to have been excessive and the primary 
cause of this accident. 


March 31, 1981, was Founders' Day at Del Val. The open- 
ing procession went smoothly, with approximately 400 
guests including over 100 students. The Chorale, under the 
direction of Mrs. Roberts, sang "Sunshine", a famous tune by 
John Denver. The performance was outstanding and was well 

Next, Rabbi Simeon J. Maslin, Senior Rabbi at Reform 
Congregation Keneseth Israel in Elkins Park, Pa., gave a 
moving speech on how DVC originated. He spoke of em- 
phasis to our college's three main assets: (1) faculty, (2) 
sports programs, and (3) land and the education to better 
ourselves. Rabbi Maslin also spoke of Joseph Krauskopf's 
influence in founding the original school. The stage was then 
turned over to Dr. Peter Glick, Jr., Chairman of the General 
Studies Department. Dr. Glick offered a look at )ames Work's 
life and how he worked to set up Del Val from scratch. 
"Without Dr. Work this land would just be another shopping 
center or housing development." Awards were then handed 
out for recognition for years of service to the college. The 
ceremony ended with the college's alma mater as all partici- 
pants faded away into the sunset until same time next year.

Studentia Loaneae — 
An Endangered Species 

by Warren Lewis 

As the budget is made smaller by the year, student loans 
will be harder to obtain. Families and private loans will have 
to pick up the slack caused by the lack of availability of 
governments. "By 1982, guaranteed student loans may be cut 
as much as 40% and save the government $2 billion over the 
next 5 years." Basic Educational Opportunity Grants will 
also be cut by 1982. Congress will attempt to head off deep 
cuts so students living in lower than $25,000 income families 
will be able to continue their education and so not to put a 
heavy burden on the parents. As usual, it is you and I who 
get ripped off.

On Wednesday, March 1 1th, Delaware Valley College had 
the pleasure of hosting Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of famed 
oceanographer Jacques Cousteau. Jean-Michel is the spokes- 
man for Project Ocean Search which is a series of intensive 
field study programs to remote regions of the world. He 
spoke to an audience of approximately nine hundred, the 
largest turnout for a lecturer in the history of the college. 

The topic for the evening's discussion was a Project 
Ocean Search expedition to a small island off the coast of 
New Guinea. Highlighting the lecture were slides of the trip 
and also a short film exploring the reefs directly off the coast 
of the island. After completing his lecture, Jean-Michel 
opened the discussion up to a question and answer period, 
providing the audience with the opportunity to ask questions 
and Cousteau an opportunity to express his feelings and 
beliefs on the changing ocean environment. 

This year, Project Ocean Seaich Expeditions are taking 
the Cousteaus to Devil's Island for studies in marine life and 
basic ecological principles; the British Virgin Islands for reef 
studies in coral ecology, reef fish behavior, symbiotic rela- 
tionships, and plankton ecology. Their most intense expedi- 
tion will take them to Bismarck Archipelago in the South 
Pacific where similarities and differences between reef com- 
munities and human communities will be studied. Anyone 
interested in the Project Ocean Search Expedition should 
contact Jean-Michel through The Cousteau Society, 930 W. 
21st Street, Norfolk, VA 23517.

The presentation of this year's Spring Musicale was held 
on Thursday evening, March 26th, in the David Levin Dining 
Hall. Both the chorale and the band presented an excellent 
performance. It was disappointing, though, because very few 
people came to listen to the talents o. their fellow students. 

The program opened with the Madrigal Singers perform- 
ing some Renaissance songs. This was followed by the Re- 
corder Consort performing songs from the same period. Next 
were solos by Jo Ann Roberts and Kathy Binaciewicz. They 
performed songs from the Classical Period. Then the Chorale 
brought us up to the present time with their selections from 
this century. Last was the band performance. They did an 
excellent job performing their selections which varied from 
the Muppet Medley to Barry Manilow to Glenn Miller. 

Both the band and the chorale should be comrfiended on 
their excellent performances, as well as Mrs. Roberts, Mr. 
Allworthy, and the student conductors. Great job. Let's see 
another great show next year. 


Sunday Brunch: 
Doylestown Inn 

by /Michael Jaskoika 

Dining excellence can be found on Sunday in Doylestown. 
The Doylestown Inn offers a Sunday Brunch in a relaxed and 
peaceful atmosphere. Reflections from the crystalline chan- 
deliers and the friendly waitress make the meal a most enjoy- 
able one. 

The brunch is set up in a buffet style in which you serve 
yourself. A hot entree is especially prepared for you while 
you enjoy the other cuisine at the buffet. The choice of hot 
entrees include Eggs Benedict, Mushroom Quiche, Pancakes, 
French Toast and Eggs any style. The main buffet includes 
juices, fruit salad, bagels with cream cheese, home fries, 
bacon, sausage, chipped beef on toast, and a choice of 
Danishes and cakes. For those who wish to have more of a 
Sunday lunch, the buffet also has a fresh green salad with all 
the fixings: roast beef, ham, chicken, barbecued ribs, soup, 
cold cuts, hot vegetables, and pudding. There is plenty of 
food no matter what your appetite, and you may return to 
the main buffet as many times as you please. 

The Sunday Brunch costs $6.95 and includes a hot entree 
and the entire buffet. I personally found the lood very good, 
and the service noteworthy. 

The Doylestown Inn is located on West State Street, 
across from the Girard Bank and Kenny's Bookstore. The 
Sunday Brunch is served from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.; no 
reservations are reciuired.

The College will again be offering two special three-day 
short courses on beekeeping which are open to both the 
members of the College community and to the general 
public. The courses are designed to benefit the experienced 
beekeeper as well as providing enough information and ex- 
perience to enable someone to get started in beekeeping. The 
Spring course will be held on Saturday, April 4, 11 and 25. 
The Summer course will be held on Friday, Saturday and 
Sunday, June 26, 27 and 28. 

The course is under the direction of Dr. Berthold who will 
be assisted by Mr. Jack Matthenius, the New Jersey Super- 
visor of Bee Culture. Some topics to be covered are: Honey 
Bee Ecology, Beekeeping Equipment, Starting with Bees, 
Colony Establishment and Management, Queen Rearing, Bee 
Diseases, Honey Processing and Sales, and Cooking with 
Honey. Many of the topics covered by discussion will also be 
observed and/or practiced in the DVC Apiary and Honey 

In past years, a number of Del Val students and faculty 
have taken the course, as well as beekeepers from as far away 
as Texas, California, Canada and Venezuela. Further infor- 
mation about the course can be obtained from Mrs. Martin 
the College Receptionist in Lasker Hall, or from Dr. Berthold, 
Room 203, Mandell Hall. Registration is Saturday morning, 
Mandell Hall, ApriUth.

As you enter, you will draw a number out of a box and 
pick up your housing contract. Your name and number will 
be recorded on a master sheet. After your name and number 
have been recorded, you should be seated, read your housing 
contract and sign it. After all the students have picked their 
numbers, the room selecting process will begin. The student 
who picked Number 1 will be called first, and we will con- 
tinue until all the numbers are read off. When your number 
is called, you will then go to the appropriate table and pick 
up your clearance slip and then select your room. After you 
have selected your room, leave your signed housing contract 
and your clearance slip at the next table and leave the

Students who have indicated an interest in showing a 
dairy animal or who have shown at A-Day in the past, have 
been sent a questionnaire regarding whether or not they are 
still interested in showing. These questionnaires must be re- 
turned by April 8th at the latest. After April 8th, any 
unclaimed Dairy animals will be reassigned. 

Students who previously requested an animal and were 
not assigned one should see me by April 10th. 

A listing of students who have returned the questionnaire 
and who plan to show Dairy animals at A-Day is posted 
outside Dr. Plummer's office.

In case you haven't discovered it yet, there is a small, 
entertaining collection of paperback books in the Memorial 
Room of the Library. The "Browsing Collection", as many 
students call it, is maintained primarily through gifts and 
contains best sellers, popular fiction of the past, and some 
non-fiction titles. 

We would like to encourage students and staff to donate 
used paperbacks in good condition to the Library with the 
understanding that literary merit is a consideration, and 
books not accepted into the paperback collection will be

The following is approximately the cost of wasting hot 
water in a properly pressurized hot water heating system: 

Fact: When a mechanical seal or a packed type faucet 
leaks at the rate of a 1/8" diameter flow, IV2 to 8 
gallons of heated water at 200° F per hour is 

Fact: This represents a loss of 10,000 BTUs per hour, or 
240,000 BTUs per 24-hour day. 

Fact: No. 2 fuel oil has approximately 140,000 BTUs per 

Fact: Based on the cost of $1.30 per gallon, this repre- 
sents a loss of $2.22 per day - inefficiency of the 
boiler not taken into consideration - or $810 per 

So, please close that shower or faucet valve and if it leaks 
report it to your RA or Community Coordinator and help us 
save your dollars.

Do you feel tension, stress or raging fear before an exam? 
Are your hands so clammy that even with stick-em on the 
pencil you can't get a grip; Do you feel as if mud wrestlers 
are having a bout in your stomach? Do you feel as if the 
world depends on how you do? If you suffer one or more of 
these symptoms, help is on the way! Sponsored by Mrs. 
Hartzel, 1st floor Lasker Hall, the workshop will introduce 
students to methods of dealing with the dreaded TEST 
ANXIETY SYNDROME. Included in this non-credit, life- 
skill discussion group will be identifying related problems, 
picking up recommended study schedules, understanding test 
dynamics, developing relaxation techniques, and maintaining 
mental preparation, in addition to other topics that come up. 

If you are interested in or have any questions concern- 
ing this workshop, stop by and visit Mrs. Hartzel. You may 
sign up with her or leave your name at the reception desk. 
This is your chance to learn to relax during exams. TAKE 
ADVANTAGE OF IT!!! Remember, that's Tuesday, April

subject of discussion by Dr. Charles J. Berger on Tuesday, 
April 7th, beginning at 8:00 P.M. in the Rudley Neumann 
Gymnasium (no admission charge). 

Having maligned the wolf for centuries, and persecuted 
him to the point of extinction, man has just begun to under- 
stand this creature. The wolf emerges from recent scientific 
studies as a valuable and highly interesting predator, with 
one of the most complex social structures of any mammal. 

Dr. Berger ulks about the wolf and its mythology, evolu- 
tion, behavior and ecology with the aid of films and slides.

Cutting Bade the U5.DA. 

by Tony Novak 

In the midst of government cutbacks and reforms in the 
name of rationalizing the national budget, the Department of 
Agriculture has come under fire. Reagan is phasing out the 
Energy and Education Department, thus eliminating their 
cabinet positions. Critics have now turned to the Agriculture 

Admittedly, the Secretary of Agriculture holds a cabinet 
position only by the justification of the many departmental 
phases that are only weakly associated with agriculture. 
Without the many public assistance programs, such as food 
stamps, the Secretary of Agriculture would not deserve a 
cabinet position. 

Still, the extent of the nation's agricultural industry must 
be considered. Agriculture is the nation's No. 1 employer, 
with an estimated 15 million workers. (This includes non- 
farm food processors and distributors.) The industry current- 
ly holds over $927 billion in assets, with $40 billion total 
exports annually. It would not be easy for the Reagan admin- 
istration to push this hefty bird out of the nest by its own 
brute force. 

Surprisingly, some important agriculturalists like the idea 
of eliminating agriculture from the Presidential cabinet. These 
advantages have been presented: 

1. By eliminating consumer-oriented programs from the 
USDA, the department could focus on serving the interest of 
the producers. 

2. Elimination of a cabinet level position would de- 
emphasize agricultural policy as a political issue. Then agri- 
culture could be based on the economic principles that 
should govern an industry of this map.nitude. 

3. Letting agricultural policy oui *rom under the thumb 
of the executive department woulc* allow present and future 
agricultural legislation to be more effective. One grain pro- 
ducer was quoted as saying, "I can play any game (agricul- 
ture) ... so long as I know the rules." This farmer was critical 
of the present system that allowed widely fluctuating 
political trends to dictate his operation. 

4. Lastly, this move would allow the congressional agri- 
cultural committees to be more influential in setting the 
national pblicies. These committees (both House and Senate) 
have authorized studies in cooperation with the land grant 
universities in many phases of agriculture. These studies will 
be the basis for a recommendation to the full Congress later 
this year. Because of the impartial nature of the studies, this 
legislative procedure is clearly supported by the majority of 
farmers anticipating a new Food and Agricultural Policy Act 
in 1981. In my mind, these groups are far more qualified to 
make policy decisions than the few executive officials in the 
White House.

authorized by Congress titled "Food and Agricultural Policies 
for the 1980's" can be obtained free by writing to :

There are nine factsheets available covering all phases of 
agriculture that are of national interest.

This is an article that I have felt like writing before, but 
nothing inspired me to write this more than last Sunday 

I agree with many other students who feel that the food 
in the cafeteria needs much improvement and more variety. 
The vegetables could be warmer and the meat could be pre- 
pared better and sometimes the salads could be fresher. But 
this is not the point of this article! 

If we expect better food we should treat the cafeteria 
more like a place to eat instead of a playpen! Not everyone 
acts like a juvenile in the cafeteria, but a few students forget 
they are in a place to eat. 

First of all, the problem with taking out glasses and other 
dishware in the cafeteria is severe. Replacement is expensive. 
For example, each glass costs twenty-five cents to replace. If 
every student takes one glass it would total $200. 

Food is also being wasted in the cafeteria. Most people 
take more than they can eat, and it all gets thrown away - 
what a waste! There are also those people who like to mix 
mustard with mayonnaise in the crocks of the condiment 
table. (Of course, all that mayonnaise has to be thrown 

If we start being a little more conscious of taking care of 
our cafeteria we could save ourselves a lot of money and 
maybe get better food.

Upsets were commonplace in the 1981 NCAA playoffs as 
every time a favored team walked onto the court they had to 
be thinking about the underdog. Following six upsets in the 
first round, seven of the 16 teams who received byes in the 
first round were handed second-round defeats. Among those 
upsets were St. Joseph's last second victory over No. 1 ranked 
DePaul, Kansas State's upset of No. 2 ranked Oregon State, 
and a miraculous halfcourt shot by G.S. Reed, as Arkansas 
wiped out Louisville's chance to repeat as national champs. 
In the third round, four of the eight favored teams were upset 
but the regional finals propelled the four remaining favored 
teams to Philadelphia. In the semifinal round North Carolina 
took a 78-65 decision over Virginia and Indiana downed LSU 

Bobby Knight, looking for his second NCAA title, brought 
to the championship game a scoring attack that had mas- 
sacred three previous opponents. His Hoosiers had finished 
the season at 21-9 but were hot when it counted. Dean 
Smith's North Carolina Tarheels finished the season at 25-7 
and for Smith it was his fourth time in the final four without 
a national title. 

Although Indiana had problems getting shots to drop, 
their defense was excellent. Randy Wittman gave the Hoo- 
siers their first lead, 27-26, as time expired in the first half. 
The second half was all Indiana as they ran up an eleven- 
point lead which the Tarheels never really threatened. The 
63-50 victory marked the second NCAA title for the Hoosiers 
in six years and Coach Bobby Knight was one of the few 
coaches ever to be named the MVP. Virginia took the third 
place honors as they downed LSU 78-74. 


The Tulsa Golden Hurricane won the 44th National Invi- 
tational Tournament by downing Syracuse 86-84. The Syra- 
cuse Orangemen downed Marquette and Holy Cross en route 
to the semifinals where they took a 70-63 decision from the 
Boilermakers of Purdue. To some people, Tulsa's making the 
finals was a big surprise but the Hurricane was for real. After 
first and second round wins over Pan American and Texas-El 
Paso they upset West Virginia 89-87 in the semifinals. 

In the final game both teams came out running but it was 
Tulsa who lead 48-42 at the half. In the second half Syracuse 
took as much as a seven-point lead but found themselves 
down by two with five seconds remaining. Erich Santifer's 
jump shot, as time expired, sent the game into overtime. 
Nolan Richardson's Hurricane prevailed in the overtime 
period, taking the NIT crown 86-84. Tulsa's Greg Stewart 
scored 23 points and was named the MVP. 

Purdue was also an overtime winner as they downed the 
Mountaineers of West Virginia 75-72 for third place. 


The NCAA Division II and Ml basketball championships 
were held on March 21. Brian Radon's field goal at the end of 
regulation gave Florida Southern another chance and for Hal 
Wissel's Moccasins that was all they needed, as they downed 
Mount St. Mary's 73-68 to win the Division II title. After 
losing in the semifinals to Florida Southern, Cal Poly-San 
Luis Obispo downed Wisconsin-Green Bay for third place. 

Potsdam Sl (NY) also had a shot fall as time ran out to 
send their game with Augustana (IL) into overtime and as 
in the Division II game the desperation shot proved to be 
fatal to the opposition, as Potsdam St. won the Division III 
title 67-65. Ursinus, a MAC Southern Division team and the 
team DVC fell victim to on January 13 (97-94), defeated 
Otterbein 82-78 in the consolation game to finish third in 
the nation. 


The Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women 
finished its basketball season on March 29 when Louisiana 
Tech completed a 34-0 season with a 79-59 victory over 
Tennessee. Tech's Angela Turner was named the tournament 
MVP. Old Dominion defeated Southern California for third

alumni during the recent Phon-AThon which raided

The girls' regular season hockey schedule came to a close 
just before the spring break. Here are the final standings: 

Goal Getters 6-0-1 

SNAFU 5-2-0 

Margarita's Babes 4-2-1 

Flakey Flyers 4-3-0 

US 3-2-2 

AMF 2-4-1 

Tough Cookies 1-5-1 

TGFCS 0-7-0 

Anthca Strang of the Goal Getters finished tops in the 
league in goals scored (she scored so many we lost track of 
them!). )amie Ryan (Goal Getters) and Liz Trimble (SNAFU) 
both finished as the top goalt^nders. Nancy Bushey (Mar- 
garita's Babes) was picked as the best defensive player 
throughout the season. 

Immediately following the break the playoffs began. 
Coach Wolfgang decided to put all the teams into the post- 
season games this year. Here are the results of the first round 
elimination games: 

SNAFU destroyed the TOUGH COOKIES, 7-0; FLAKEY 
FLYERS nipped US, 2-1; GOAL GETTERS romped over 
TGFCS, 7-2; MARGARITA'S BABES won by forfeit over 
AMF, 3-0 (They played a "just-for-fun" scrimmage game with 
AMF anyway, and won it 5-1 ). 



At one time the National Invitational Tournament (NIT) 
was the major post season tourney in college basketball, but 
this title was later given to the NCAA tournament. Two 
years ago the NCAA increased the number of teams in this 
tourney from 32 to 48. This season the NIT was fortunate to 
have some basketball powers in their 32-member field but 
the NCAA has proposed a 62-team field for next year. Wasn't 
it bad enough the first round of the NCAA this season was, 
for the most part, boring and that the NIT has suffered from 
the expansion two years ago. The new proposed expansion 
would not only ruin the NIT but also the NCAA. 



April 13th through 15th will be your first chance to see 
which club has the best volleyball team. This three-night 
tournament is fun for all and there will be a prize for the 
winner. Come out and cheer your team on Monday, April 
1 3th. Thanks, Kim!

P.S. Have your rosters in by April 8th either to me or to Mr. 


Kathy Kravitz, women's volleyball coach, will take over 
the reins from Coach Vellner next season as head basketball 
coach. Ms. Kravitz is an English teacher in the Souderton 
Area School District, having a B.S. degree from Millersville 
and a Master's from Villanova. Included in her coaching 
career are seven successful junior high seasons and a three- 
year record of 60-1 1 as coach of the Montgomery County 
College women's basketball team. At MC3, Coach Kravitz led 
the team to two Pennsylvania Community College Athletic 
Conference Championships, two state Community College 
Championships and two Junior College Championships. Let's 
hope she can do the same for Del Val.

PHON-ATHON: $70,000 for 
Student Center 

by Joanne uubanski 

The Phon-A-Thon was held last week and the results were 
great! We raised over $70,000 for the new Student Center 
during the entire six-day period and everyone using the 
phones had a great time talking to alumni that they haven't 
seen for a while. (Some people met alumni for the first time.) 

Most of the response for the Student Center over the 
phone was favorable. Many of the recent DVC grads felt as 
we did about Segal Hall and how inadequate it is. Most of the 
alumni also can't wait to see the new Student Center when 
it's built. 

Of course, the Center won't be here until September 1982. 
(Many of us will be alumni by then.) The Alumni Association 
needs to raise $300,000 by that time and this $70,000+ sure 
helps a lot. If you have any ideas on how to raise money, 
please contact Student Government or the Alumni Associa- 


Many people find that studying in groups o1 two or more 
can be extremely helpful. The relaxed discussion stimulated 
by questions and answers can clarify or reinforce a concept 
that may have been ha/y in a student's mind. We in the 
Library wish that we could offer facilities to accommodate 
just such cooperative efforts within our building, but, unfor- 
tunately, we have little space available to dedicate to those 
purposes. When groups overflow from tables in the Memorial 
Room and settle down in clusters in the Cooke or Shapiro 
Wings, the noise increases, despite all good intentions to the 
contrary. The students who, looking for a private place to 
work, have already settled in the carrels, become frustrated 
because the noise level is too high for them to concentrate. 
We think that both the solitary thinker and the student who 
must work with his classmates have legitimate needs - but 
these needs are difficult to satisfy when space is inadequate. 

Mr. Larsson, our Registrar, has offered us a solution to 
this problem. He has compiled a list of classrooms which arc 
vacant from time to time during the day, adding notations 
of the hours when they are free. The next time that you want 
to review with your friends, and you find that the center 
section of the Library is already filled to capacity, just 
consult that list and hurry to the nearest empty classroom! 
In that way, everyone will be able to finish his work under 
the conditions that are best for him. 

For your convenience, a list is posted in the Library.

I remember when the lawns used to be green and the sky 
blue. I remember when paths were used - not shortcuts 
taken. I remember wheno// people respected the campus and 
the work done on it. I remember respecting other people's 
work and not defacing it. 

The attractiveness of our campus has been somewhat 
tarnished in the last few years, but fow the College adminis- 
trators and landscaping personnel are trying to change this 
image. I have talked to Dr. Feldstein, Mrs. Work, Dr. Mertz, 
Mr. Tasker, Mr. Rellis, Mr. Russell (Mr. Deibler) and the new 
life blood in the landscaping campaign, Dr. Seik. Dr. Seik has 
been working very hard on new ideas and improvements for 
the campus. In his landscape const uction classes the students 
have built trash containers for the campus. He is also working 
on establishing a well developed nursery on the College 
grounds. What can be said about Mr. Russell that has not 
already been said? Of all the work done on the campus, he 
has done most. In the spring each year Mr. Russell reseeds 
and fertilizes areas that have been trampled. It is a shame he 
should have to reseed an area due to trampling at all. Mr. 
Rellis has been in charge of campus landscaping this year and 
has been doing an outstanding job. Pruning trees that needed 
it, sprucing up the baseball field and putting in a new lawn 
behind Cooke and Barness which has since been ruined, have 
been a few of his projects on campus this year. Mr. Rellis is 
also renovating the home barn buildings and is making plans 
for replacing the trees that have been lost in the last couple 
years from storms and diseases along the College drives. Mr. 
Tasker is one of the members on the campus planning com- 
mittee. Although the committee met only one time first 
semester, he said he is open for any suggestions from students 
or faculty concerning improvements for campus and he will 
be sure to forward them at the next committee meeting. 

Dr. Mertz, Mrs. Work, and Dr. Feldstein gave me their 
feelings about improving the looks of the campus. First of all, 
they commend the fulltime landscaping crew, the work study 
people, Mr. Rellis, and Dr. Seik for their outstanding work, 
time, and effort put in to make our campus as beautiful as 
possible. They also would like students to acknowledge this 
work and try to avoid damaging it whenever possible. Take 
pride in your campus as if it were your own home, farm, 
garden or sanctuary. Use gravel and asphalt paths and walk- 
ways instead of your own shortcuts. Yes, we all understand 
in a few places shortcuts may seem necessary but for the 
majority, please use the established walkways. The more 
everyone cooperates, the more attention that can be spent on 
(1) the Student Center, (2) new athletic equipment, (3) im- 
proving the farms and dairy facilities, and (4) improving the 
dorms. Remember the cold facts: The more damage we do, 
the more it will cost us in the loss of these four items and 
many more, plus a higher cost of tuition in the short run.

Students discuss career opportunities with business leaders 
at Wth Annual Career Conference. 


by Cornelia Prundeanu 

The 10th Annual Business Administration Career Con- 
ference was held on April first, from 9:30 until 11:00 a.m., 
in the gymnasium. The conference was once again a success, 
with over 30 business people and about 100 students attend- 
ing, including local high school students. 

The conference was set up as an informal "trade fair", 
which included such diverse fields as accounting, real estate, 
industrial sales, and personnel. The students were able to 
hear presentations by the various speakers, and further pursue 
the topics that interested them most. 

Later, the students who served as escorts, members of the 
DVC administration, and the business administration faculty 
had a luncheon in the dining hall. Dr. Wolf, VPof Planning and 
Financial Affairs at DVC, spoke on the similarities between 
the college and other types of business enterprises. 

The career conference was an excellent learning experi- 
ence for all the students who attended, as it allowed them to 
meet members of the business world, and to find out first 
hand what is involved in these different professions.

Graduation ceremonies will be held at Ginkgo Lane, due 
to the efforts of a few seniors who proved that this was in 
fact the choice of the majority of the senior class. 

A previous survey conducted by Student Government in 
January indicated a preference to hold graduation in the 
James Work Memorial Stadium. The main advantage of the 
stadium is that it could accommodate more people. How- 
ever, administrators say that seating room has not been a 
problem at Ginkgo Lane in the past. 

The students pushing for Ginkgo Lane say that they want 
to continue the tradition of Del Val graduation. One student 
said, "Any school can have graduation in a stadium, but only 
DVC has a Ginkgo Lane." 

After all this ado, there is still the possibility that rain 
will force the ceremonies to be held in the gymnasium.

Chuck Alpuche, of Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, will be 
graduating with his Business Administration degree this May. 
Chuck has finished four brilliant years of football here at 
Delaware Valley College, playing defensive end. He has re- 
ceived many honors while on the team. The Philadelphia 
Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raiders have all ex- 
pressed personal interest in Alpuche. He has also been con- 
tacted by two scouting services that represent, the NFL. 
Chuck says he wants to wait and see what happens in the free 
agent draft; and hopefully some day we will see Chuck 
Alpuche wearing the jersey of a pro football team.

The morning alarm rings loudly in your ears; the music 
blasts out of the radio, signaling the time, the temperature, 
and the mellow sounds of your local D.J. Realizing you have 
a full day of classes, you diligently rise with effortless energy 
to begin the day. 

Class begins. You notice the number of students present 
has been cut in half since the beginning of the semester - 
Why? One reason may be the lack of interest for the course 
because of the students' attitude. Yet, on the other hand, the 
problem may be how the material is presented by the pro- 
fessor to his students. The latter problem may be written off 
as simply a personality conflict between the student and the 
professor. But if many opinions are sharing the discontent 
with the professor's unsatisfactory teaching performance, 
some action must be taken. 

Dr. Blackmon, Dean of the College, states that if a 
problem should arise between a student(s) and professor it 
should be discussed with his or her department chairman. 
Another alternative is to approach the problem firsthand by 
talking to the professor and stating your view of concern. 

Students also think that if the professor is on tenure that 
he or she cannot be discharged. The tenure track process does 
not uphold this actual theory. To be considered on the tenure 
track it is first necessary for the professor to be full-time and 
have the necessary degrees also proving a satisfactory work 

Guidelines set up for the tenure track process were estab- 
lished in the early 70's. Most of the professors who are on 
tenure were accepted before 1974 with the number approxi- 
mately 79 members. The tenure process is eligible to a pro- 
fessor after a 6-year probationary period has been completed. 
Once the process is in effect it will insure the professor's 
position so long as a major violation does not occur. Tenure 
is a goal for a professor to reach but it is not something that 
is strictly final. Tenure may be revoked and the person asked 
to leave if they are found to be performing unsatisfactorily in 
the eyes of the administration. Yet, to dismiss a professor on 
mere opinion, student or other, is difficult and has rarely 
been done. 


'Twas the night before a Chem test 

and all thru the dorms 

most of the freshmen in Chem II 

were studying up storms. 

The ones who don 't understand 

were being tutored by smarties, 

Not a thought entered their minds 

about going to any parties. 

Now at three a.m. 

all are snugged in their beds 

while visions of acids and bases 

dance in their heads, 

as rapid as an eagle 

thru the pages they flow 

repeating to themselves 

the stuff they should know.

electrons, density, pressure, Gibbs Free energy; when the 

viscosity increases, then the temperature doth fall. Now cram 

away, cram away, cram away all.

A-Day 1981 is fast approaching. Final preparations are 
being completed for what will prove to be the biggest and 
best A-Day in the history of Delaware Valley College. This 
year the weekend event will be held during the first weekend 
in May, in hopes of warmer and drier weather. 

The A-Day Committee, headed by co-chairmen Gwen 
Stauffer and Bill Bippus, have been working extremely hard 
to make things happen for this year's festivities. Organization 
has been the key to all the 1981 A-Day subcommittees and 
this has helped in the smooth development of A-Day 1981. 

This year the A-Day Flower Show will be held in the 
Rudley-Neumann Gymnasium to better accommodate the 
large crowds. The clubs will have their usual booths and 
displays, along with a series of lectures; all of which will be 
quite interesting, educational and fun. The Chorale and DVC 
Band will be holding their spring concerts along with special 
mini-concerts throughout the weekend. The beef and dairy 
showings will be spaced throughout the weekend. And as for 
food, well there will be plenty of that — pizza, milkshakes, 
cotton candy, burgers and much more. 

With estimated crowds between 30,000 and 50,000 
people, A-Day is truly a big event. It provides an opportunity 
for Delaware Valley College to open its doors to the com- 
munity, alumni, parents, and incoming freshmen to show 
them how this College functions by spotlighting the majors, 
clubs, and other aspects of the campus. 

The A-Day Committee encourages everyone to participate 
and enjoy A-Day 1981.

What is the largest major, Ornamental Horticulture, sorely 
lacking to make it a more well-rounded major? A working 
nursery is the answer. 

The prospect of developing a nursery is being looked into, 
but such questions as available land, irrigation, and manpower 
still need to be answered. Such courses as Woody Plant 
Materials, Landscape Plant Materials, Ornamental Horticul- 
ture Techniques I and II, Nursery Management, and Plant 
Propagation would truly benefit with the addition of a 
nursery. A local nurseryman has donated four acres of plant 
material to the college for that purpose, but until all the 
channels have been looked into a nursery cannot be estab- 
lished. Several interested students have been looking into the 
idea of an established nursery operation, but what is needed 
is more interested persons. For any ideas, suggestions, and 
support please contact Bob Romanowicz in Goldman 108.

Letter to the Editor: 

I am i concerned Ornamental Horticulture student at 
Delaware Valley College of Science and Agriculture. I am 
proud to attend one of the finest landscaping schools in the 

While reading our 1980-81 catalog, something caught my 
eye that disturbed me greatly. The catalog states in this issue 
and in past issues that there are "greenhouses and propaga- 
tion houses that are used in the development of seedlings and 
cuttings to be transplanted into the greenhouses and In the 
nurseries" (more than one). Where are the college nurseries 
located? How can the college print that we have nursery 
facilities when there is nothing of the sort? Is the small 
"garden" between the Ag. Machinery Building arvd the soccer 
field supposed to represent a nursery? A large percent of 
students on campus (approximately 60% of the Ornamental 
Horticulture students are landscaping majors) would benefit 
greatly from such a nursery. Chemistry and Biology majors 
have laboratories. Dairy and Animal Husbandry majors have 
farm situations. Horticulture and Agronomy majors have 
large orchards and fields, and Business majors have a com- 
puter facility. We too pay "dues" here at Delaware Valley 
College and would like to see nurseries established for 
students majoring in Ornamental Horticulture. It's never too 
late to better our department. By bonding together, we could 
make the promise of a nursery a nursery in reality. 

Robert Chambers 

/ have discussed the prospects of a nursery with Dr. Fe Id- 
stein and Dr. Merti during the past year. They have assured 
me that the development of a nursery is a high priority item, 
and a couple tracts of land are under consideration. 

Dr. Selk 

Mr. Chambers: 

The nursery facilities at the College presently include the 
two lath houses located between the greenhouses and the 
Horticulture Building and the modest planting to which you 
referred, located between the soccer field and the agricultural 
machinery building. I hasten to point out that we have not 
been sitting still on the problem of developing these facilities 
and expanding our facilities beyond them. Five years ago 
only one of the lath houses was up and it was in bad repair. 
The other lath house was not there, period. And there was no 
nursery planting at all. So we have been progressing! 

The reason why we have not expanded our current nur- 
sery planting this year is that we have come to recognize the 
limitations imposed by its location. The site is limited in size, 
subject to accidental damage due to the activity on the 
adjacent soccer field, and it lacks a dependable water supply. 
We are currently, as Dr. Seik has indicated, reviewing several 
other sites, with water supply again one of the main problems. 

Installation of a complete nursery is something we all 
recognize as being of value, even necessity to our program in 
Ornamental Horticulture. However, it is not something to be 
undertaken lightly. We can easily buy or propagate liners, 
plant them in the ground when we have the manpower (in 
class laboratories) and walk away congratulating ourselves on 
having established a nursery. But who will prune, weed, spray 
and irrigate those plants when students are not here in the 
summer? What kinds of plants do we need? What kinds of 
cultural practices and facilities do we need for instructional 
purposes? Where are the supplies and materials needed going 
to come from? These are the questions we must be prepared 
to answer before we commit ourselves to a new nursery site. 
We're working on them. Your suggestions are welcome. But 
we have no magic wand that will make a larger, more com- 
prehensive nursery appear on the DVC campus overnight.

Dear Editor, 

The water shoruge is still present and the non-essential 
water use ban is still in effect. I can live with that But I was 
wondering how a toilet running all night in Berkowitz Hall is 
considered essential water use. Let me explain. 

Sunday night a toilet on Berkowitz First broke and could 
not be shut off. Maintenance was called and Security showed 
up. The security guard reported nothing could be done until 
morning and the water would just have to run all night. Of 
course, the security guard did try to shut off the water (he 
gave It a good swift kick) but this measure failed and the 
water ran all night. 

Although Security is limited in the maintenance which it 
can do, it seems that more could have been done or at least 
more of an effort could have been put forth to assure that 
the college uses its water wisely.

Dear Editor, 

On Wednesday night the 25th of March, I was witness to a 
strange incident. While on a study break I was walking out- 
side near Segal Hall when I noticed a security car sitting 
between there and the library when suddenly the car took 
off, driving towards the Ag Building. When it reached the end 
of Ginkgo Lane the car turned in and headed directly for 
Ulman Hall at a good speed. At first I thought that there may 
have been an emergency so I just watched wondering if some- 
one had been hurt. To my surprise, the car just pulled up to 
the building where he proceeded to talk to another officer 
who was parked there in the Jeep. Are we to attempt to 
believe that we shouldn't drive on lawns when Security is 
setting examples like this? I think that an explanation is in 

Yours in confusion, 
Paul Pearson, B.B.C. 

Editors' Note: We contacted the Security Office concerning 
your letter. All Indications point to the fact that the above 
mentioned Security car has been summoned to check out an 
Incident near the Mandell Science Building. It appears that 
Security has access to the various roadways and walkways 
during emergency situations. They are here to protect all of

Governor Thornburgh declared a drought emergency in 
fifty Pennsylvania counties of which Bucks was one. The 
Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) was 
authorized to issue regulations effecting sixteen counties (of 
which Bucks was one) prohibiting "non-essential water uses". 
The regulations state NO WATER MAY BE USED FOR 
OR LAKES. If caught the regulation includes FINES up to 
$200 and imprisonment up to thirty (30) days for the first 
offense and up to $500 FINE and ninety (90) days imprison- 
ment for succeeding offenses for non-compliance. On and off 
for the past 3-4 weeks WATER has been going into Lake 
IT? Why? 

Four weeks ago we began this investigation to try to deter- 
mine who was pumping water into Lake Archer. We began 
by asking Dr. Seik, who referred us to Mr. Rellis, who sug- 
gested we try Maintenance, who said try Mr. Tasker - none 
of whom knew the answer to the question. Then who is 
responsible for pumping water into Lake Archer? Is the 
reason purely aesthetic, or is there a legal reason behind it? 
Speaking of legal - could someone at DVC actually be fined 
or imprisoned if caught by the local authorities enforcing this 
regulation??? And just who will that someone be?! 

Don't pick the flowers. 



Want to take your education farther than the classroom? 
Do you like working with others? Are you interested in 
getting involved with campus life? If you can say "Yes" to 
any of these questions or have other concerns for doing 
something, we have a challenge for you. Run for the Student 
Government or a class office. It is something that Isn't a joke. 
Did you know that these two organizations are responsible 
for funds that total nearly $65,000 a year? That's right! 
Every year a select number of students are responsible for the 
spending of these monies. 

You can get involved by filing a petition with Mr. Tasker, 
Dean of Students, on the first floor of Allman. It is as simple 
as going in, picking up a petition, getting the required number 
of signatures (35 for class officers, 50 for SGA), and joining 
the campaign trail. 

If you are interested in a class officer position, all mem- 
bers of the class are eligible for the election. Positions include 
President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, Rep to SGA 
Conduct & Policy and two Reps to SGA Social House. Class 
Presidents and Conduct Reps are responsible to attend the 
weekly Conduct and Policy meetings and earn Vi credit per 
semester. Social House Reps are also responsible for their 
weekly meetings and, in turn, earn Vi credit per ^mester. 
Commuters also elect one Representative to each House. 

With the exception of SGA President, Vice President and 
Social House Chairperson, all students are eligible for the 
position of Secretary, one for each House, and Treasurer. 
Presidential candidates must have one year experience on 
Government, as is true for Social House Chairperson. Vice 
Presidential candidates must have one year experience in 
I.C.C. (Inter-Club Council). For your service, one will receive 
Vi credit per semester. 

Yes, there are even benefits. Along with the enjoyment 
and headaches, class officers get into all class-sponsored 
activities free and SGA members, including class presidents 
and reps, get into all government-sponsored activities free, 
usually including a guest, as well as a year-end banquet and 
gift. All members also get to work side-by-side with some of 
the White House administrators; and you thought this was a 
small-time operation! 

Stop by and visit Mrs. Nelson, executive secretary to Dean 
Tasker and Area Coordinator Mr. Marror*, to pick up your 
petition. Petitions for government positions are due by April 
23rd and April 30th for class positions. SGA elections will be 
held Monday, April 27th, in the lobby of Ag Building. Class 
elections will be held the following Monday, May 4th, also in 
the lobby of the Ag Building. C'mon, Uke the Aggie chal-

The Goldman Hall RAs are Bob Galdi '83, Mike jaskolka 
'83 and Tom Kirk '82. 

Bob is a first year RA on the first 
floor. He is a dairy major from 
Newtown, Pa. After graduating, he 
expects to attend Penn State or 
Gwynedd Mercy College to complete 
teacher certification requirements. 
Bob would like to teach vocational 
agriculture and also to be involved 
in research. 

Bob is a very active outdoor 
sportsman. He has been on the cross 
Bob Galdi, Goldman ht country team since his freshman year. 

He also enjoys bow hunting and gunning along with fishing. 
Whatever spare time is left. Bob enjoys rebuilding 1969 cars. 
Why the '69 models; Bob told me that was the last year of 
the really well-made car. He Is also one of the vice presidents 
for the Apiary Society. 

Bob is employed by the College, working at the dairy and 
poultry house. He also works at Burpee's Fordhook Farm and 
at various times works for local dairies. 

Bob considers himself a very optimistic Individual who 
tries to live with a positive outlook. He believes that his 
positive attitude is what pulls him through those trying times. 

Mike is from Levittown, Pa. DVC 
is the only college that he applied to; 
he was familiar with the area and he 
wanted to take agricultural courses 
along with his chemistry major. Being 
a chem major is a challenge to Mike, 
although he doubts that it will be his 
career. He has an interest in engineer- 
ing and he would also like to have a 
fruit or vegetable farm. 

Mike has spent four years in the 
U.S. Marine Corps. He was a Platoon 
a platoon leaders' class. He is in the 
last summer he completed Officer 
Candidate School. Upon graduation, Mike will be commis- 
sioned a 2nd Lt. in the Marine Corps with an aspiration of 
being a fighter pilot. Mike told me that he would like to 
make the Marine Corps his career. 

Mike is very industrious and ambitious. He pursues a 
variety of interests. He has traveled around the world, enjoys 
learning about historical sites, and especially enjoys toy 
woodworking. Mike is on the cross country team and he is 
also a member of the Apiary Society. He has been an RA for 
two years. Mike also writes the weekly "Dining Out" feature 
for the Rain Pages. 

Being an RA, Mike has enjoyed working with such a diver- 
sified group of people. He believes in making the most of 
experiences and broadening one's ambitions; following the 
"rut" is a hindrance according to Mike.

Most of the general public goes to movies during the 
Summer. This is when a majority of the movie theaters 
present most of their movies. This summer is no exception, 
and there are a number of interesting movies to be seen that 
you should know about. There will always be the typical 
horror pictures and B-rated pictures that are showing for 
about a week, but there are also some really interesting 
science fiction movies coming out. 

A new movie called Outlander promises to be a big 
lit. It stars Sean Connery and it's about a moon mining 
operation where people are dying a little more often than 
they should. Another good science fiction movie coming out 
is the long-awaited Superman 2. This movie promises to be 
just as good as the original Superman with Lois Lane (Margo 
Kidder) and Superman (Chris Reeve). Also look for James 
Bond in For Your Eyes Only, coming out in June. 

There are four really good comedies to be seen this 
summer. Mel Brooks is back again with Harvey Korman in 
The History of the World - Part I. This is a satirical look at 
the last 2,000 years of world history. Also, Burt Reynolds 
has three movies that he helped produce that look like hits. 
These movies are The Best Little Whore House in Texas with 
Dolly Parton; Paternity Suit (co-directed by David Stein- 
brenner); and The Cannon Ball Express, another Burt 
Reynolds chase movie, which is always entertaining. 

A good summer for movies is in store for us. See you 

R. A. TOUR (continued from column 1) 

Tom is majoring in Business Ad- 
ministration. Upon graduating, he is 
interested in sales work and he would 
like to coach football at his high 
school in Warminster, Pa., which is 
Archbishop Wood High School. Tom 
transferred to DVC two years ago. He 
attended Lehigh University for one 
year. Although Lehigh was not what 
Tom wanted from a college experi- 
ence, he told me that the year there 
Tom Kirk, Goldman 2nd taught him a lot about himself and 
that he does not regret the year in any way. 

This year has been Tom's first year as an RA. He told me 
that he finds the job to be a challenging learning experience 
with people his own age. It is a job that calls for a lot of self- 
discipline. Until he was involved in discipline of his peers, he 
didn't realize how often you take for granted or take advan- 
tage of your peers. Tom plays a halfback position on the 
football team; last year he was awarded "Player of the 
Week". He participates in intramural floor hockey, basket- 
ball and Softball. Tom has an overall interest in most sports; 
he especially enjoys water skiing. 

During the summer months, Tom is a laborer with a 
bricklaying company.

Animal welfare activists are gaining momentum to greatly 
influence the future of animal production. Though small in 
number, this urban-based group is powerful through their 
loud campaigning methods. They are getting the attention of 
the public and our lawmakers. 

A national humane association leader describes these 
groups as "radical to mildly radical". Their motivation can 
best be described as anthropomorphism. This means that they 
attribute human feelings and thoughts to animals. Their logic 
is to ask, "If I were a laying hen, would I like these (con- 
finement) conditions?" 

This is no joke, and these groups should definitely not be 
taken lightly. In Germany, animal welfare groups are acting 
on behalf of animals, representing them in suing their owners. 
In Denmark, confinement poultry operations were outlawed. 
The egg production industry almost collapsed because it 
could not compete with the rest of the European market. 
Finally the laws were repealed. 

In the U.S. many agricultural leaders admit that dealing 
with this movement may be a major concern of the livestock 
industry in the 1980's. Most producers are not opposed to 
the concern for animal rights, but they quickly point out that 
the changes that animal welfare groups are asking for would 
effectively triple the prices of animal products. Is this really 
in our best interest? 

The answer will probably be decided in the not-too- 
distant future. But before that decision is made, all of the 
pros and cons of the change should be brought before the 
public. The normally quiet livestork industry may need to 
speak for its own interests; and very likely the interests of 
all consumers.

Got a bike? Got some spare time on Sunday afternoons? 
Want to go for a ride? Interested? Tired of the questions? 
Read on. 

Each and every Sunday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. at 
Friendly's in Doylestown, the Central Bucks Bicycling Club 
leaves on bike rides. Anyone can go on these rides. There are 
four categories of bike rides: D (for beginners) is a S-6 mile 
ride at a very slow pace. C is the next step up and a ride any 
college kid should be able to handle. B is of any disunce up 
to 30 miles with good size hills involved at a steady pace. A is 
like B at a faster pace of about 16-1 7 mph. 

The Club which sponsors these rides is large, about 100 
members, and informal. Anyone who goes on the rides is 
under no pressure to join the club but is requested to be 
prompt in showing up. If you enjoy peddle pushing and are 
bored on Sundays, this could be something to check out. 



There will be a meeting of all graduating 
seniors on Tuesday, April 28, 1981 at 3:30 p.m. 
in the James Work Gymnasium. Attendance is 

During this meeting graduation packets will

After losing terribly to Scranton (3-14) the day before, 
the women's softball team showed us their top winning form 
when they played Upsala, the score, 6-3. 

The weather was enough to dampen anyone's spirits 
(literally), but not these Aggies. In the first inning Del Val 
gave up one run, but made a nice lead by scoring four runs, 
by Marcia Werner, Donna Gasano, Bernie Romano, and by 
pitcher Michele Forry. No runs were scored in the second and 
third innings. The rain started falling, making footing hazard- 
ous to all on the field. Upsala, feeling as if they were getting 
nowhere, switched pitchers in the middle of the third. 

In the fourth inning, Upsala made Del Val nervous by 
getting two more runs, bringing the score to 4-3, favoring the 
Aggies. The Aggies were able to get another run in, made by 
first baseman Annmarie Souchick, bringing the score to 5-3. 
With the rain coming down even harder, Upsala was unable 
to get anywhere in the fifth, and second baseman Werner 
scored another run for Del Val, making it 6-3. At this time, 
the umpires called the game due to the apparent sogginess of 
the field. 

On April 3rd, the Lady Aggies were not as successful 
when they lost to Kings 6-7. The Aggies played a no-error 
game, yet allowed three runs to get past them in the first 
inning. They were unable to catch up until the fifth when the 
Aggies grabbed five runs, taking a lead of 6-5. Kings made 
two more runs in the sixth, bringing it to 6-7, Kings favor. 
Then in the seventh, Sandy Yerkes, who had been playing an 
excellent game as first baseman, was robbed of the tying run 
when Kings made a "Hail Mary" catch. The final score then 
was 6-7. 

Chris Van Arsdalen made a good relief pitcher and 
catcher Irene Costa made some great hits.

Track season is well on its way as the Aggie Thinclads 
have lost only to Division II Millersville in four meetings. 
The Aggies defeated both Widener and Swarthmore on April 
4th. Led by Mark Tankersley with wins in both the high and 
intermediate hurdle events as well as running on the victori- 
ous 440 and mile relay teams. Other winners for the Aggies 
included Jeff Robinson in the 440, Jim Parsons in the mile. 
Rich Weaver in the three-mile, Gary Walters in the shotput, 
Warren Robertson in the javelin (qualified for nationals with 
a throw of 218.3) and Matt Flanagan in the long jump. 

On April 7th the Aggies took a split, losing to Millersville 
but downing Trenton State. Once again the Aggies were led 
by Mark Tankersley with wins in both hurdle events (which 
qualified him for nationals in both events) and the anchor on 
the record setting mile relay team. The relay team ran a 
3:25.17, breaking the previous mark of 3:25.7. The only 
other win for the Aggies was Ron Barrett's jump of 13.24 
meters in the triple jump. 

After running against Elizabethtown on Saturday at 
home, the Aggies will be taking on Susquehanna and Albright 
tomorrow at James Work Memorial Stadium. 


DVC baseball is off to a fast start in 1981 with a record 
of 3-1-1. The first game of the season was a hard-fought 8-8 
tie with Swarthmore. The Aggies followed the tie on April 
2 with a 9-6 victory over the Lions of Albright. The combina- 
tion of good hitting and pitching on April 4 led to a double- 
header shutout of Drew University 6-0 and 2-0. The Golden 
Bears of Ursinus handed our battery boys their first defeat 
on April 7, downing them 8-6. The Aggies are playing a 
doubleheader at Upsala today. 


In their second season, the Lady Aggies are having their 
ups and downs in the early part of the season. A little bit 
more pitching control and our ladies should have a great 
season. Defensively and offensively the team is pretty sound 
and it looks as if Coach Mar/ulli, with the help of her players, 
is going to continue tht winning ways of women's sports at 
Del Val.
